Thalia: Leak always run away!


Thalia: Knock Knock

Me: Who's There?

Thalia: Um...


Thalia: Knock Knock

Me: Who's there?

Me: Fish who?

Thalia: Fish is a fish. A fish is what you see in the water. And also it SWIMS! Swim swim! And JUMP! Like I'm jumping. Watch me jump!


Thalia: Knock Knock

Me: Who's There?

Thalia: Door

Me: Door who?

Thalia: Remember when you thought I was a door?

Me: Is that even a word?

Thalia: Fleegafleegafleegafleegafleegafleeg

It's so funny when they're trying to find their sense of humor. Even when the jokes aren't funny and don't even make sense. I so love that stage. At least until they get into "pranks."

Very cute. Boo is starting to learn puns and irony. In the meantime, she is a walking punchline.

I think those jokes are pretty damn funny, but I'm probably just high.

Knock Knock!

Who's there?

Interrupting cow!



Then followed by every other (interrupting) animal that makes a sound. Continued until I manage to escape the barnyard.

So cute! I definitely see a future in comedy!

It's definitely time to teach her these handy phrases:
Is this thing on?
Last time I saw a crowd this dead I was in a morgue.
But seriously folks...

Yeah, knock-knock jokes were very, very big in our house for a while (said wearily while banging head into wall).

She is a cutie though. That helps.

Ours does the same sort of thing - wants to play, but doesn't quite get the concept entirely yet...

My oldest spent the entire summer in that stage last year. You just made me realize I hadn't heard that sort of thing in a while.

i love when kids learn knock-knock jokes. they're so funny, because they make absolutely no sense whatsoever. :-P

Ah, yes. Toddler knock knock jokes. It's even better when the punchlines become potty-humor. Just wait. Loads of fun.

Some phases are just not worth revisiting. The knock knock phase would be one them.

I remember these types of jokes and then I remember the first time littlesis came out with a for real funny joke I laughed so hard and it brought back the memories of the first time I told a real joke that made my own mother laugh outloud - your post did this all over again.... thanks!

LMBO - Those are my favorite kinds of jokes. They make zero sense to us but they sure do make the kiddies giggle.

The height of hilarity in our home today?

Q: Why did the elephant cross the road?

A: Because the chicken had the day off.

She's so totally cute, I want to bite her. May I? I won't break skin. Probably.

I'm glad to see that my son has some competition in the knock knock joke department. I never know if I should laugh, cry, or tell him to go watch some more tv.

My children have been making up jokes for a long time, and now that they are nine and twelve, their jokes are actually getting witty, as apposed to funny because I think you are cute:-)

At that age, Willa's favorite one was:

W: Knock knock.

Me: Who's there?

W: Boo

Me: Boo who?

W: You don't have to cry about it!

We all laughed so much that she used that punchline for every knock knock joke whether it applied or not. It was very funny indeed.

My little brother and I (we were only 16 months apart) would sit and tell each other the same knock knock joke over and over for half an hour, and laugh every time.

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Alligator who?
Alligator gonna eat you!!!

Yeah. Easily amused. But if the hysterical laughter of two toddlers amusing themselves nicely together isn't contagious to you, you don't have a soul.

Anya's latest is:

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Nana who?
Nana who mama!!!!

We don't get it.

She also calls pigs "coy-coys" and cats "capidoo-and-a-mama."
