This is the fun that we have been having around here lately! Speaking of fun, I wanted to thank everyone for their votes for the Gnome home...WE won!! I was so excited to read this today. And I am even more excited to pick out my print.

I haven't blogged about them for awhile....but my two boys are growing like weeds. I feel like every time the laundry cycles through I am seeing more and more "highwaters" in their pants' drawers. AND is there a mystical link between the age 2.5 and 5.5?? Or is it a "brotherhood"?? I have been feeling lately that the two of them have been plotting before they fall asleep to overthrow my queendom. They have been hitting me from all sides lately. If it isn't the never ending
"Knock, knock."
"Whose there?"
"Banana Who?"

"Knock, knock."
"Whose there?"
Then it is the "Mom, you skipped that part of the Reindeer song...sing it again."
Or the run around the table at meal time or the "We are having THAT for dinner?? BOO-Hooo"

Let's just say that I really love those two, but I need the patience of a saint to keep what little sanity I have left. Today was better, but I think that I am just being optimistic about this being a phase and not the new norm.

Tomorrow will be nice too if anyone has any new Knock, knock jokes suggestions???

whoo- the gnome won, nice one! The campaign worked well....good going, girl!

I have no knock knock jokes, despite having them told to me daily, I've turned off and can't hear them anymore!

Knock knock
Who's there?
Boo, who?
Stop crying, it was not that bad!

CT said...

Knock knock
Who's there?
Dewey who?
Dewey have to (insert action here)?

I know, they are both awful, but they are the only ones that I can remember for the time being!

Sorry - past the age the knock knock jokes! Girls are so much better than boys until they get to the teenage years and then I don't know what the difference is!


ok... here's one of my daughters favorites.

Knock knock
who's there?
Interrupting cow


(knocker interupts the person saying "interupting cow who?" with a big MOOO!)

Another, but not a knock knock..

Why does Shrek never smell?

Because he uses de-OGRE-ant!!!

It is always fun to see your growing boys. We didn't tell many "knock-knock" jokes. Our forte was collecting jokes to share with our dentist (weird, I know). There's nothing like a good joke to ease the tension just before the dentist inserts a sharp object into your mouth. I won't bore you with them all, but here's a classic example:
What are a dentist's least favorite letters of the alphabet? (D, K)
Oh what the heck, here's another:
What's a dentist's favorite band instrument? ( a toothpaste) Get it?

I was so engrossed in joke telling that I forgot to congratulate you on your crafty win. The gnome home really did stand apart in the 3-D category. Well done!
