"Knock-knock," I say.

"Who's there?" he answers.


"Danielle who?"

"Danielle at me, I heard you the first time!"

Rojo laughs, "Don't YELL at me, I heard you the first time!"

We've been working on knock-knock jokes for many years. Could it be that they're starting to click? I try again.


"Who's there?"

"Frank's eye."

"Frank's eye who?"

"Frank's eye needed that."

"THANKS, I needed that!" Rojo squeals.

And that, my friends, is what you call delayed development, not absence of development.

Sense of humor!!

That's great! I hope we'll get there one day too.

See if he likes this one; it's not a knock knock, but it's our boys' favorite:

What's a pirate's favorite letter?

In this, like everything else, Rojo plots his own course. He's a wise one, that Rojo.

He'll love this one:

What do you call a deer with no eyes?

No eye deer. ;)

That's my motto - delays don't mean absence. Just a different road.
