This is a really funny post from the blog "Goldilocks and the three bears" Take a minute to go check this blog out-it will be worth your while.
GL has a hard time telling when people are joking, so when he gets it, it's a big deal. When he responds with a joke of his own, it's a bigger deal. When his joke is actually funny, it's the biggest deal of all. Yesterday I was out in the yard, and he asked MB for the 500th time, "Where's Dad?" In exasperation she said, "I ATE him!" "Mom, that was rude! You didn't leave any for me!"
