A pea in the ear is worth two in your mouth

Ethan has a new game. I think it’s called ‘Let’s drive mommy nuts by putting peas in my ear’. We haven’t figured out all the rules yet, but here’s how he plays it.

1) Pick up a pea

2) Put it in your ear

3) Mom will take it out and remind me that it should go in my mouth

4) Repeat

He started doing this last night with his carrots. He’s teething again and we’re hoping those molars start revealing themselves soon. This morning I got a phone call from Heather to inform me that my son was obsessed with putting peas in his ears. I couldn’t stop laughing.

If he keeps this up I think we’ll have to lower his high chair and let the dogs remove the peas with their tongues. On second thought, he thinks dog kisses are a riot and we don’t want to encourage him. I’m going to have a hard time keeping a straight face if he does this when I’m home.
