Here is Ian pictured in 2011 being a ham at the beach. He loves to be silly for the camera!
He loves to laugh and loves to be tickled. In fact, he told me that being tickled makes him happy. I wrote a blog about that in 2011 — entitled “Tickling Brings Out My Happy.”
Ian is an active and lively boy who likes to have fun. For that I am thankful.
And, he is pretty good at telling jokes. Well, at least for someone his age. Here are few jokes that Ian told me about one month ago. They may be more questions but he was giggling when he told them, so I did too!!
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. His delivery was great with these — which is part of telling a good joke or funny story.
***What jiggles in a house when people are eating it? — Jello
***What has two wings, glides across the sky, and has a driver? — An Airplane
***What skittles side to side, has claws and a shell? — A Crab
***What buzzes around and has wings and is yellow and black? — A Bumble Bee
After telling these jokes (questions) to me, I told him I enjoyed those a lot and that he was pretty clever. As you can imagine, he grinned from ear to ear.
He then said, “Mommy, I am going to tell you a funny tale,” which was a tale about someone named Drack Drack who had a long ponytail. Get it?!
Ian is also good at making up stories and will often tell them to me before he goes to bed. He has a very active imagination. I love that he is creative, happy, and loves to laugh.
My son is a real blessing and brings joy to me each day! I thank the Lord for him.
There is a quote that says Laughter is the best medicine! I do believe that is true. Having Ian in my life so adds to that medicine. I hope that you too have someone in your life who brings you joy and laughter.
