We’ve discovered that Ethan wants everything to seem as if he was the one who thought of it first. And many times when we suggest an item of food or an activity, he will refuse it right away. Except he will suggest the same thing about 10 seconds later.
When asked if he’d like noodle for dinner, his usual response is a NO! So powerful that it could be loaded into a gun and used to knock a bird out of a tree.
