Monkey's New Trick

Without any warning, he surprised us all (especially his teacher) with this:

To celebrate his new skill, he got to pick a special treat. He elected to go downtown to the candy store that we visited with Aunt B at Christmas time for some gummy bears(and pet the carriage horses, of course.)

The last few days, he's been writing it backwards. Is that a lefty trick we haven't seen before?

Monkey has been very interested in 'jokes' lately. Are they tricks? Are they funny? Do you say them? It's so complicated.

Tonight, we were treated to his first ever joke. It changes a little bit every time, but it goes like this:

M: Ding Dong!
Us: Who is it?
M: It's Batman!
Us: Batman who?
M: Batman Auggie! (or, alternately, August Henry!)

This is, as you can imagine, hilarious.
