Ethan Chews Gum

Yesterday Ethan and I were sitting at the computer and I noticed a piece of gum in front of me, so I popped one in my mouth. Well, my 2 year old who always mimics his daddy decided he wanted a piece too. So little by little I fed him the stick of gum, constantly checking to see if he was swallowing it. I kept saying "chew" and he would follow by saying "two" while holding up his fingers. "No Ethan CHEW" I said. "TWO" he replied back. "No Ethan "CCCHHHEEEEWWW" I said slightly frustrated. Ethan then said "One". So I gave up on that and just watched his mouth. He knew exactly what he was doing. He chewed that gum for hours like he was trying to quit smoking or something. Yet again our son impresses with yet another amazing feat. WELL IT WAS AMAZING TO US...OKAY. Shaun

That is pretty cute.The trick is to get them to throw it in the trash when they are done.

I agree with Kiersten. Somehow my ten and eight-year-olds still have trouble with the finding the trash when it is time. They like to twirl it on their fingers, and chew it until it becomes a hard rubber ball, saving it on their plate through a meal. Probably they're just not as advanced as Ethan though...;) He is a cutie!!

Turns out Ethan is WAY more advanced than Mary. She got gum in her hair today after school---grrr!!!
