Our daughter got her first joke today. I was listening to her play tea parties in her room with her Mum. The tea pot was being filled to the brim with imaginary steaming hot tea and all the cups and saucers put into place as her soft toy friends arrived one by one and were seated into their allocated positions.
The last soft toy to arrive was Octy the octopus.
“Sorry I am so late to the party” says Octy.” It took me quite a while to put on all my shoes!”
“Octy…” says our daughter. “..Shoes.”
There was a slight pause and then to our complete surprise she says, “Ha ha ha, mummy funny, mummy funny!”
I still can’t believe it myself…
