Have you heard this one yet?

Jake is 5 and learning to read.  He points at a picture in a zoo book and says,  "Look Mama! It’s a frickin’ elephant!"

Deep breath …

"What did you call it?"

"It’s a frickin’ elephant, Mama! Look, it says so right under the picture!"

and so it does …

"A f r i c a n Elephant"

Learning to read using phonics.  Ain’t it wonderful?

  1. I usually try to add more sustance to my comments, but I don’t want to compete with your post. This was one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. Maybe because I have a Kindergartener. Maybe because I am tired. Maybe because I don’t get out much and don’t know what’s funny in the world today. BUT THIS WAS FUNNY!


  2. Ha! So funny! Playing video games with the boys last night they were giggling beacause the name of the land we were in was Asgaurd. But they kept calling it Assgaurd.


  3. I have tears of laughter falling down my face and cannot stop! That is the funniest thing I have read all day – and come to think of it, all week! Love it! And I am loving your blog and writing style. Fun stuff! I’ll be back for more. And thanks for visiting mine as well.
