A Reason for Kids

Standing behind Ethan in line to buy something, I put my hand on his head and rubbed it. I encountered a foreign substance.
"Ethan, what's in your hair?"
"Peanut butter."
"How did you get peanut butter in your hair?"
"I fell on daddy's toast."

This is funny to me for a number of reasons. First, the plain fact that he has peanut butter in his hair. Second, that he seems quite content to leave it in his hair. And third, how exactly did he manage to get peanut butter on the very top of his head? Did he do a headstand on the toast? How did he not hurt himself doing this?

Just another reason to have kids.

Did Erik know that Ethan fell on his toast?

I don't think he did.

That's even funnier.

my question is: how do you fall on toast? Unless the toast was on the floor. . . or on the counter. . . or you are on the table. . . hmmm

That IS the question. I assume it was on the floor in Ethan's room while they were playing.
