Crappy Boy has a pair of ear protectors because he got a drum set when he was two.
He still plays and he is still adorable:
Anyway, those ear protectors have found themselves in other forms of play too. Like pretending he is a robot or something.
The other day, this happened…
He walks out of his room and I ask him if he wants to go outside to play before dinner. He has the ear protectors on:
He doesn’t hear me. Is he just pretending to not hear because he has the ear protectors on?
I go along with it and repeat it louder:
Still doesn’t hear me. He has a completely innocent look on his face. I don’t think he is playing a trick.
I suggest he remove the ear protectors:
And he says, quite sincerely:
He is so much like me.
A few people have asked so I’ll just update it here – we have these Peltor ear protectors and they work really well. Crappy Baby has them in pink.
