Not so nimble

My Toot gave me a belly laugh yesterday. He ran up to me in the kitchen and said, "Mommy, let's see who can jump the highest." I agreed, "Alright, but I'm pretty sure you are the highest jumper!" So we jumped, he trying to touch his toes in mid air.

Afterwards, I said, "See, I think you were highest." He replied sadly, "No, Mommy. It's gotta be you." "Why, me?", I asked. He said, "Because girls have nipples. They must jump higher."

Toot's inspiration:
Jack be nimble (nipple)
Jack be quick.
Jack jumped over the candlestick.

That has to be one of the funniest things I've heard in while! It seems completely logical once you read the poem! :)

That is SO FUNNY! Definitely one for the books. :) I love those little things they say.

Today Jack made a mess in the car (accidentally) and when he told me (being "honest") I kind of groaned and he said with a sigh, "I wish it was like the cartoons, when you tell the truth people would be HAPPY. Sigh. That never happens."
But he gave me a good laugh and THEN I was happy! :)
