Growing and Changing

So much growth!

My cute girl is now 9.  She's a third grader....soon to be a 4th grader!  Last night, she participated in the school talent show.  This was a HUGE deal!  Kids on the autism spectrum don't get jokes the way the rest of us do.  It took a great deal of effort to find jokes she thought were funny and so did other people.

It also took quite a bit of explaining what a talent show is, what you could do, why it is not appropriate to train a cat to sit, and why eating rice with chopsticks is great but would be hard for the audience to see.

Here are her jokes:

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interupting cow.
Interupting ......Mooo!!!

Why is six afraid of seven?
Why?
Because seven, eight, nine.

Why do cows have bells?
Why?
Because their horns don't work.
