A Feeding Frenzy

Dominic is pretending to feed his friends (Doggy, Tigger, Pooh, and Elmo).  After putting yummy things in Doggy, Tigger, and Pooh's mouths, Dominic feeds Elmo's eyeballs.  Curious about this, we ask Dominic, "Why are you feeding his eyeballs?"  Instead of answering, he just repeats, "EYEBALLS" then continues with a little litany..."Eyeballs, Jesus, Shh, Quiet, Listen".   

What?  Exactly what we thought.

Well, apparently, "Eyeball" sounds a lot like "Bible" to a two-year-old. And Jesus is in the Bible.  And we learn about Jesus in Church.  In Church we say, "shh,"  "quiet," you need to "listen." So, Eyeballs, Jesus, shh, quiet, listen.
