It’s true — itty bitty baby laughs are one of the best things in the whole world. Hearing a small baby’s gurgling laugh is enough to make my ovaries ache and I have to talk myself off the precipice of adding a third kid into the mix. But you know what? No one told me just how magical big kid laughs could be. Getting those laughs is a lot harder than just making silly sounds at a baby, so you need to be prepared with the best kid jokes.
And yes, they will involve poop. And farts. And other weird, silly things that are funny at any age, but grown ups act like they’re too mature for.

Big kids are unpredictable, and they’re just as likely to laugh at your jokes as they are to roll their eyes at them. Don’t let that stop you!
Scribble jokes onto napkins and tuck them into their lunchbox. Wait to tell a joke till they’re taking a drink of water. Coax them out of bed with your absolute corniest joke — they’ll wake up just to tell you how lame you are.
And if they don’t laugh at some of these best kid jokes? That’s okay, you can laugh for them.
