Some of the funniest moments I can remember did not come from a witty person, or a comedian; they came from a toddler. The naïve, cute, and totally hilarious things that come out of their mouth have made me laugh harder than I ever have before.
My nephew Wyatt is one of the funniest, unpaid comedians I have ever met. For example, the other night I was quizzing him on his spelling words. At the same time, my boyfriend was trying to change the television but the remote was not working. After trying a few times, he became frustrated and shouted, “How do you change the channel?” My nephew, still in spelling word mode, yelled back, “Press the guide! G-U-I-D guide!” My boyfriend and I could do nothing but laugh. After calming down, we explained to him that he left out a letter.
On another evening prior to the spelling blunder, my sister, my nephew, and myself were at the Atlanta airport trying to navigate our way through the parking garage. Being directionally challenged, we got lost. Wyatt decided to ask a random man making his way through the parking garage where we needed to go. The man gave his directions and went on his way. Getting the last word, Wyatt shouted, “Thank you! We are all blondes here!” My sister and I laughed and asked each other where he came up with these things!
I was with my best friend while she was on the phone with her sister, who lives in Florida. She put her sister on speaker phone so we could both talk to her. In the background, we could hear her niece, Brooklyn, singing loudly. Suddenly, Brooklyn stops singing, and says, “Daddy, how do you spell diarrhea?” Needless to say, we all couldn’t stop laughing. We laughed even harder when we realized that we didn’t know how to spell diarrhea without consulting the dictionary.
I do not have any kids of my own, and am not sure if I want one yet, so for now I am enjoying the free entertainment provided by my friends’ kids and my nephew.
