Today at dinner we were trying to teach Addie how to tell a joke. I taught her

Q: What's a pirate's favorite letter?
A: Aarrrrrr

Ha ha. So she repeats it a few times and then makes up her own joke.

Q: What does a camel say on a bus?
A: Spit spit.

Each time she tells it she laughs and says "that is a funny joke." The best part however is that each time she says "that was a funny joke" Edith looks at her and gives the biggest belly laugh. It is usually difficult to get Edith to laugh without tickling her. Maybe we just need to be telling her bad jokes over and over. It works for Addie every time. Or maybe Edith is just being a very supportive little sister, laughing at big sister's bad jokes.
