It feels so strange when you realise, as a mother, that your children are growing up.  There’s something about certain things that they do, that signify that they’re getting bigger.

Today, it was Bradley telling jokes.

It might not seem a big thing for those of you reading my blog, that don’t have kids.  But before now, he’s never really found jokes funny. He’s listened to them, but they haven’t stuck in his head, and he hasn’t laughed when he heard them.

And that’s changed.

He was telling us 2 jokes tonight, and they were so cute!

“Why did the worms go into the ark in an apple?”
.
.
.
“Because all the other animals went in pairs!”

And then…
“What do you call a sheep on a trampoline?”
.
.
.
“A woolly jumper!”

I love that he’s understanding them now and finding them funny 🙂
