We introduced our children to the game of gossip this week. While playing it today, Luke happened to put his hand on Peter’s other ear while he was whispering his “gossip” to Peter, I jokingly said, “You have to put your hand on his other ear to keep his whispers from coming out.” Luke jokingly said back, “Yep.”
A few minutes later, I noticed Peter making sure to cover the other ear while whispering each time he told his “gossip.” Once while I was whispering to him, he said, “Mom, you forgot to cover the other ear to keep others from hearing.” Luke and I shared a look and a quiet snicker. Kids are just so fun to be around!
I guess I’ll have to tell Peter that sounds don’t literally go in one ear and out the other, but if I tell him that, I’m sure it will just go in one ear and out the other! I guess I’ll try telling him anyway, and maybe he will remember what I have told him if I remember to cover his ear. 😀
