They say that laughter is good for the soul. If that’s true, then my soul is in some seriously good shape. And I have my seven year old son, Tyler, to thank for a large part of that. Simply put, Tyler is hilarious. Sometimes he means to be funny. Sometimes he doesn’t. But regardless of his intention, I find myself laughing out loud at that kid ALL. THE. TIME. He has always had a more mature sense of humor than most children his age, and he understood comedic undertones and sarcasm at an early age, so I shouldn’t be surprised. Yet, I am. And I don’t think I’m surprised by the fact that he is downright funny. But I am most definitely surprised by the bits of information that he seemingly pulls out of his back pocket at random moments.
I have a Tuesdays with Tyler recurring post, but let’s be honest…. I have totally neglected that post. And to be frank, I don’t want to wait until Tuesday to share with you one of my favorite “Tyler-isms” EVER. The following conversation happened today as we pulled into the McDonald’s drive through.
Seeing a police car ahead of us in the drive through line:
Tyler: “The police can’t eat at McDonalds!”
Me: “What? The po-po can’t like McDonald’s, too?”
Tyler: “The po-po??? Who’s the po-po?”
Me: “I don’t know. Who do you THINK the po-po is?”
Tyler: (pauses) “Francis the 1st?”
This literally sent me into hysterics to the point that I couldn’t even order our drinks! I love my kid. And I love that he, at the age of 7, knows that there is a Pope AND the Pope’s name.
Hopefully this little story has brought a smile to your life the way it brought one to mine! And because a photography blog MUST have a photo….
Pope Francis I.
Happy Saturday, friends!
