What passes for humor in the soquoted household

Wherein the 4-year-old could not understand why the parents were laughing

The child is a puzzle wiz. Last night, she pulled the Melisssa & Doug Solar System Cardboard Floor Puzzle out of the closet. It's 48 pieces and 2x3 feet. Here's a picture:

After putting it together, she jumps over it. Because that's just who she is. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Leading to this conversation:

She: Look, I jumped over the sun and didn't get hot.

Me: Yeah, but you almost fell on Uranus.

Learning her in the art of 'pun'ditry early I see.

Before long you'll be exposing her to some Piers Anthony, and then it's all over.

Heh! It passes for humor in our house, too!

If your daughter takes to it the way my son does, they would likely get on like a house on fire. (They're--what?--only a year or so apart, right?)

And he is rather "fond of the little ladies."
