Toddler Humor

I've always thought my kids were funny (in a good way), but little H really outdid herself this morning in the "making mommy laugh" department.

Last week she wanted to take her little purse and some toys to the nursery at church. When I picked her up, she told me one of her friends was sad because she wouldn't share the toys she'd brought. We had a little talk and I told her if she wanted to bring her toys around the other children, she should share them.

This morning she wanted to take "Baby" with her to church. J reminded her that she would have to share if she did. I concurred and gave her a little "make sure you share with your friend" pep-talk.

H stared at me for a few seconds, then banged herself on the side of the head a couple times. "I can't hear what you're saying, Mama. I must have something stuck in my ears."

J and I both cracked up! I was so shocked at her ability to make such a joke at the age of 2, that I didn't even think to be offended that she was intentionally tuning me out!
