The Wisdom of Two

I have a relentless, embarrassing, corny sense of humor (I know the mythology is we women are frequently destined to become our mothers, but I have actually turned into my father).  Because of that, whenever I talk to my granddaughter about broccoli, which she loves, I sing "Brocc-a-leee" like Dana Carvey.

Apparently she can discern the difference between funny and annoying at the age of two.  Because when I do this she looks at me solemnly, points her finger at me and says firmly " 'Top it!"

This is also the child who insists her parents were traveling to Cancun on vacation in a rocket ship.  Who knew she knew what a rocket ship was?!

P.S. I still think Dana Carvey's Broccoli is funny.  "There's a lady that I know.  If I didn't know her, she'd be the lady I didn't know."  Priceless.


Did you like what you read? Let others know. Thanks!

I honestly don't know much about his comedy...but we are supposed to annoy the little ones in our lives. It's a sacred duty

Well Patty if we are supposed to annoy the little ones in our lives, I am an absolute success. lol

Just a quality control question: Were you able to play the You Tube clip of him singing the song? That function has been a bit dodgy on my blog lately. If you are not familiar with the skit, the 'joke' is certainly a lot less funny, so I stuck it in there for context.

Thanks, as always, for being such a faithful reader. xoxo

I think the Broccoli clip is quite I must share your type of humor.

That is precious that your granddaughter says "top it". I wonder if she thinks when people travel on a ship..meaning a cruise ship...she thinks they are talking about a rocket ship.
