All of you have funny children I’m sure but mine is really funny. He is funny without even trying. Dakota is 6 years old and has been funny for a while. A couple of years ago we were driving down a road in Calgary and Dakota asked a question that had nothing to do with our conversation. He said, “Dad, do people drive with their elbows?” What an odd question, but my husband answered anyway,”no, people don’t drive with their elbows and if they do they shouldn’t be.” Dakota got a funny look on his face and then asked the question “then why do they call this elbow Dr.?”
About a few months ago Dakota was sitting next to a vent in church. All of a sudden he skooches over to me with an intense look on his face. “mom I think I am a jedi”
“What?” I ask
“I think I am a jedi”
” I was sitting next to the fan and I was wishing that the fan would turn on. It did mom, I have the force.”
The most recent incident was when my two sons and I were reading Harry Potter. We were at the part where Aunt Petunia was cutting Harry’s messy hair. She had cut it, shaved it. The next day it grew back. Dakota remembered that earlier that day I had been complaining about how fast his hair grows. He put 2 and 2 together and decided that he was a Wizard.
These are only a few examples but I deal with this on a daily basis. I’m glad he makes me laugh. I’d rather be laughing than yelling or crying.
