Small Is Tremendous

I was getting e-baby ready for bed, and singing her one of my favorite songs and she was looking at me, so sweetly, so happily, with all this love in her eyes, and she touched my face in that heartachingly sweet way, and when I finished the song, she moved her little thumb to my nose and said,
(e-baby): Smell my thumb. Does it smell good?
(me): Ummmmmm, I guess so? Where’s it been?
This was apparently the funniest thing she’d ever heard anyone say, and when she recovered from her paralyzing laughter, she held up her little thumb to ask it.
(as e-baby): Where have you been, little thumb?
(as thumb): In Mexico!!
Which was the funniest thing I had ever heard anyone say.

Aww, baby's first "smell my finger" joke! Heh.

This morning, C-girl said, "Mommy, I got a joke for you, wanna hear it?" I said ok. This was her joke:

"An elephant. On a waterslide!"

Seriously, that's it. The entire joke. Then she fell over laughing. Kids are strange, man.

You all keep me in stitches! Maybe we'll end up on that side of the US so we can get the kids together on occasion? Let you know when I know more!
