Baby Boy Makes Me Laugh

Well now cannot make Word of the Day challenge work (it is acid) but I want to write.
So I decided to tell y’all a story that appeared in my Facebook memory feed. He must have been either 4 or 5.
When I read it I howled.
Today I told Tember and he figures it is ‘mom’ humor…..like dad humor but way funnier.
Once upon a time
Tember was a little boy
ever so cute
but on occasion
lies were known to fall
from sweet baby lips.
Mom (that would be me)
sat next to him
stern look upon my face
and I said to him:
“Look me in the eye and tell me
that you do not lie.”
Well
Child o’mine
I been dere
I done dat
gonna catch ya out
no matter what.
Of course
no eye contact was made
chortled I did
for correct I had been.
Suddenly
Tember shouts
“No”
zooms in
tongue out
licks my eye
while I shout
‘wth dude?????’
And this my lovelies
is the best thing ever
his response:
‘Well Mom
You told me to lick you in the eye
and say no.’
