"Me no here"

At dinner tonight our almost 2-year-old stuck his fingers in his ears and with a smile on his face said, "me no here". My husband and I heard the same thing, "me no here". We thought it was pretty hilarious that he would think he wasn't there just because he couldn't hear anything.

As we laughed about our son's humor and talked about how it reminded us of our nephew who used to cover his eyes and say, "I'm not real" - we both realized at the same time that he was actually making a rather matter-of-fact observation that when his fingers were in his ears, he couldn't "hear".

Oh well, the joke's on us. We no hear either!
