Everyone was in the bathroom. The whole family. Having a family meeting while Russell was trying to have his own time. This happens to him more times than he’ll ever admit. But I will. Right here. Right now.
I asked Russell. “If you look at the entire population, I mean, the whole POPULATION of whatever, the country, the world, what percentage would you think was funny?”
Russell was sitting (the only one sitting in the bathroom, I might add), and said, “funny as in HA HA?”
“Yes, how many of us are HA-HA funny?”
“10%,” he said. “Do you think the three of you could leave the bathroom?”
Zaffron immediately piped in. “10% of our family is funny?”
“No, babe,” I said, “10% of the entire world population is funny. 100% of our family is funny.”
“Oh,” she said. “Mommy is this funny.” And she stretched her hands out to her sides, as wide as they could go. Like this:
See what I did here? Zaff’s hands are represented by the stick thingies and the space between her hands is represented by the dashes. I’m clever.
“and Daddy is this funny.” She did it again.
“And even Mgazi is really really funny. This much,” she said and streteched her hands from her body.
“And I’m this funny.”
I laughed. “Of course you are funnier than that Zaffy. You make me laugh every day.”
She said, “You laughed at my joke. That makes me this funny.”
Awww… my sweet funny little–
Russell, still sitting, interrupted my silent praise of my child. “Yeah, you’re all hilarious.”
So cute (and funny)! Perhaps this funny |——————————————————————|
Thanks for sharing this glimpse of your funny family

Aren’t kids great?! I especially love being around the 2-4 yr olds. They really make me laugh. But mine are past that age now, and unless my sons decide to start reproducing, I’m not going to see anymore grandchildren. I hope they read this and understand the pressure is on!
I dread the day when my kids stop being funny. I have a feeling it will coincide with the time that they are suddenly embarrassed by me.
Sorry! I hit enter by accident before filling out all the goodies necessary!
