Jake's jokes and funny things kids say.

Jake's Jokes: The Joke might have been on Jake, but it cracked us all up. Last night, I listened to Jake read for the first time since the teacher told me he reads and comprehends at 12th grade level. It is amazing- he rarely slows to sound anything out- even the words that give me pause. My tears fell on the pages of his book while he read aloud. And then tonight...
Amanda: Is Bigfoot real?
Jake: (As it sounded to my ears) No! He's just a great, big Ho' Axe.
Mommy: (Worriedly) What's a Ho' Axe?
Daddy: Ho' Axe... And SAM figured it out first!
Mommy: Hoax! He's a hoax? It depends who you ask.
Jake, great sounding out of the word, but we pronounce it Hokes.
Jake: Ohhh... It looks like Ho' Axe. (laughs)
I really like thinking about Bigfoot being a great, big Ho'... Axe.

P.S. Last night I warned him that if you don't ask for help you may misread a word your entire life. For me it was laughter. Lawter. I can't see it without reading Lawter. Thank Goodness we caught this one before it was too late.
