Funny Jokes For Parent's Day
Tuck You Into Bed
On a cold winter's night, a small boy is tucked into bed by his dad. Just as soon as the dad turns out the lights his son asks, "Dad, can I get a glass of water?" Not wanting to entertain his son's requests, the dad replies in the negative and makes his own way to bed. Five minutes after settling into bed, the son calls out again to his dad, "Daddy, I really need water, can you please get me a glass?" Infuriated, the father replies, "No, you can't, try and get some sleep before I choose to give you the spanking of a lifetime!" Minutes fly by, "Daddy", comes the call again, "when you come in to give me that spanking you just spoke about, can you please get me a glass of water too". Needless to say the son got his water minus the spanking.
Don't Suck Your Thumb
No mother likes to see her son sucking on his thumb and this is as good as a fact. It so happened one day a mother who was fed up with her son sucking his thumb warned him about not doing so. She told him that if he continued to suck his thumb, he was sure to get fat, fatter than the fat boy who lived down the road. This fat boy was most noted for his culinary conquests at the local bakery. Thankfully, the very thought of getting fat scared the child out of his wits and he decided to stop sucking his thumb. One day, as mother and son were walking down the lane to their home, they chanced upon a pregnant lady. To the mother's delight, the young boy ran up to the pregnant woman and exclaimed, "Ah, I know what you have been to, please Ma'am, do stop sucking your thumb".
