Her First Joke

I think Esther actually tried to tell a joke on Monday. She picked up the concept of teasing a couple of months ago, but her cadence and tone when she said this today made me think that she was actually trying to tell a joke.

As we were driving down the road in D.C. to see Isabella and her new sister, here's the conversation that ensued:

"Mommy, Mommy, look at this. A train is driving on the street!"
"A train is driving on the street?"
"Yes, Mommy, a train is driving on the street."
We laughed and then, a few minutes later...
"Mommy, that truck is driving on the cloud. Isn't that ri-dik-ooo-lus? The truck is driving on the cloud?"

Despite her funny joke, I also don't know where she picked up ridiculous. We usually say "silly" when we're making a joke.

She's pretty funny, that one!
