Beatrice Kate has always had a silly personality. Even when she was little, she would do things or make funny noises just to get a reaction from us. Now that she has the ability to fully express herself with words, she's come into a new performance medium: The Joke.
Except, every time she tries out a new joke on us, we're not quite sure what's going on. That's probably because she doesn't fully understand how the cadence of a joke is supposed to work. Or more likely, she doesn't even know what she's saying is a joke at all.
It's like an Abbot and Costello Routine at our dinner table sometimes.
For example, here's one of her favorites:
Beatrice Kate: Knock, Knock Daddy.
Casey: Who's there?
Beatrice Kate: No, you say knock knock too Daddy
Casey: Ok, Knock Knock
Beatrice Kate: That is SO FUNNY, Daddy.
And then she proceeds to peel into a fit of giggles.
The end. Seriously. That's her joke.
And the funnies don't stop with Knock Knock Jokes. Another favorite of hers goes like this:
Beatrice Kate: Mommy, Do you...
Me: Do I what, sweet girl?
Beatrice Kate: Do you know the Muffin Man?
Me (confused): Um, the song? The Muffin Man song?
Beatrice Kate: No, Mommy. Do you know him? You don't know The Muffin Man, Mommy. That's SO SILLY. Mommy is SO FUNNY.
Toddler humor is... well, it's unique.
