And then I heard him say "A guy walk into a bar..."

I have probably mentioned that Lil Joe's diction is less than perfect. He does, however, say an awful lot, so we can generally get his point through the context of the few words we can make out. I'm on the phone with Hubby earlier today, and I hear Lil Joe's voice in the background:

Lil Joe: Knock, knock! Hubby: Who's there? Lil Joe: Anana Hubby: Banana who? Lil Joe: Knock, knock! Hubby: Who's there? Lil Joe: Anana Hubby: Banana who? Lil Joe: Knock, knock! Hubby: Who's there? Lil Joe: Aunj Hubby: Orange who? Lil Joe: Aunju gadda [mumble, mumble] anana?

And of course, he laughed and laughed at his own delivery. Why should he waste his time learning how to convey things like what he wants to eat for lunch or that he needs a fresh diaper when he could be cracking jokes.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
