TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (FTN) – A Terre Haute toddler was caught on camera trying to eat an oven mitt.
That was as his mom was cooking him dinner.
It happened Friday night at a southern Vigo County home.
According to officials, two-year-old Alex Essex approached his mother, Ami Essex, with the mitt in his mouth.
We question Ami when the last time Alex has something to eat was.
“He had a snack like 45 minutes before that. I think he was just being…weird,” Ami told us.
The mitt is made of rubber and was sitting on the counter.
“His food was in the oven. He was having a fit about something…and he just stopped and said mitten,” Ami said. “That is when he walked up to me with it hanging out of his mouth.”
Officials say Alex ate his entire dinner when it was finished.
