Kid Laughs-Jokes and Riddles

Camping in McCall, ID 2015

Believe it or not, growing up I was a rather serious kid.  I would offend easily and dished out a lot more than I could take.  It wasn’t until I started dating Mr. Man when I began to change.  He is such a tease and totally changed me.  He taught me how to laugh at myself and to live in the moment instead of worrying about all of the ‘what-ifs’.  He has definitely passed that along to the Amigos.  I’ve never been around a sillier bunch of boys.  Half of the time they don’t even mean to be silly.  They love jokes, riddles and to envoke belly laughs in just about anyone.

I’ve been sharing all of the funny things they say for the last couple of years on Twitter.  It’s interesting just how much others think they are funny as well.  It’s a good sign that I am not some delusional mother.  As a tribute to my boys, I wanted to share some of their favorite riddles and jokes.
