Thumb Sucking

Thumb Sucking (Photo credit: nathansnostalgia)

A boy had reached the age of four without giving up the habit of sucking his thumb.

His mother had tried everything, from bribery to reasoning to painting it with lemon juice to discourage the habit. Finally she tried threats, warning her son that, “If you don’t stop sucking your thumb, your stomach is going to blow up like a balloon.”

Later that day, walking in the park, mother and son saw a pregnant woman sitting on a bench.

The four-year-old considered her gravely for a minute, then said, “Uh-oh…I know what you’ve been doing.”

    Just wanted to say thank you for your joke posts. I have gotten into the bait of finding your post each evening as my signal to head to bed. I hope you don’t stop or I may be late for work in the mornings. 🙂
