It's amazing to me how a child's mind grows. Both our kids have a great sense of humor. They are both imaginative and it's great watching them develop their ability to entertain themselves and others. Ally is more likely to use a more mature sense of humor these days with witty comments, puns and sarcasm as opposed to just acting silly. It's neat to see because some silly behavior just doesn't carry over well as you get older. JJ is still at the age where silliness is completely appropriate. He adores slapstick humor (Scrat's difficulty in keeping his acorn in the Ice Age movies always gets a laugh) and frequently will get silly to make a slapstick joke. He's also at that age where the things he says just sound funny... imagine my surprise this morning when he told me he wanted to watch, "PoooP!!" and then realized that he is trying to get me to put in his new Winnie the Pooh computer game. He says things like "poofrints" instead of footprints, and "piderman" instead of Spiderman.

Spiderman has actually been a fun discovery, as well. He now turns down his waffles for breakfast, but will eat "web waffles" and has decided that pulling his winter hat down over his eyes and putting on his ONE mitten transforms him into "Piderman!!" He imagines he is a dinosaur, monster, super hero and a baby animal/human all in the space of minutes- one begins to wonder how many personalities are inside that little imagination! And just about anything can be turned into a "wocketship!" He's also discovered the joy of singing and dancing! He randomly busts out into songs from Dinosaur Train and he is willing to dance with Ally on her Wii game. Our kids are certainly a lot of fun!!
