The Animals (?) at the Fair

So Jaxon was on the phone the other night telling his grandparents all about the county fair. About the "spinnis wheel" (ferris wheel) and how he and Mommy, and Daddy, and Grammie (other grandma) rode on it but not Ogie (grandpa) because he was eating popcorn and you can't eat popcorn on the spinnis wheel. So then he went on to talk about the animals. "We saw horses, and pigs, and bunnies, and chickens, and ducks, and poop..." at this point I start laughing and am soon doing the silent shaking laugh, barely able to gasp for breath, shoulders aching. Apparently my parents were laughing too and Jaxon was just DELIGHTED that he had made a funny joke. So then he kept repeating it over and over and "laughing" - each laugh becoming more and more fake, making me laugh all the harder.

Ok - it's somewhat funny in the telling but I guess you probably had to be there to get the full effect ;P

Kids are so proud when they can make us laugh. Julia's the same way. She would also rank "poop" high on the "coolest stuff I saw" scale.
