Have you heard the one?

Our Lance has the funniest sense of humor.

We have been told many, many times that children with the type of disabilities like Lance's, do not understand abstract ideas and concepts. They most often will have tons of fun and laugh, but will not comprehend or tell jokes. This is not the case with Lance, he loves jokes, jokes of all kinds. Every single teacher he has ever had, has told us that Lance is so funny and has the greatest sense of humor.

We know this because we have been the recipients of many a jokes or one liners. The funny thing is, they come out of the blue when you least expect them.

Here are a few of the ones he has told us, with his classic follow up line. These are for my family's benefit.

Why did the chicken cross the playground?
A: To get to the other slide. Get it??? Other side, other slide???

Why did the boy throw the clock out the window?
A: Because he wanted to see time fly. Get it??? Clock flying out the window???

What did the baby corn say to the mama corn?
A: Where is Pop corn? Get it??? Pop corn, Dad corn???

What kind of movies do pirates go to?
A: Arrrrr rated ones. Get it??? R rated, G rated???

What did Captain Hook want for breakfast?
A: Peter Pancake. Get it??? Peter Pan...cake??? Like pancake??? Get it???

We are so blessed that Lance doesn't fit the mold, God can do amazing things.

That's so fun. Comic relief to balance out the other concerns.

Our son is our surprise bonus baby and I think God knew I needed some comic relief for menopause because Nate has me laughing all the time. He seems quiet and reserved to most people but he is a comedian at heart and really lets loose at home. But laughing that hard at my age after four babies has consequences...

I love this! Isn't God great that we are all individuals and not one is the same! Your Lance's sence of humor sounds fun! My husband and my son make me laugh all the time. Their sence of humor is very similar. I agree with Cindy laughing hard does have consequences at our age....

I love humor and envy people who have a natural God given sense of humor and the joy they bring to all. You truly are blessed. It is very nice to hear that you think my doodles are good enough for a shop. I may fancy one up just to see what it would look like with some color and a frame. If you see one that stands out in the crowd, please let me know. Dee

Some day when you have a minute or two, (if it's not too "fresh" or personal of me to ask), would you take a minute and update me on Lance's condition? I have only followed you for a little over a month and pick up little pieces here and there, but would feel it a great privilege to have the bigger picture. Thanks, Gina.....Rebecca

God is so good to give us happy moments. I am glad that Lance and you both enjoy humor. I get tickled when the grandkids tell me a joke even when most people would not find the joke funny!

Lance's follow up lines are way better if you can see the hand gestures that accompany them!

That's so great that you can enjoy Lance's sense of humor. You need that to balance out other issues.

Laughter is truly the best medicine for what ails us. Donna
