Peanut butter baby still making us laugh, 11 years on

It’s been 11 years since mum Gina Gardner Brown uploaded this video of her then-18-month-old son, Ethan, covered in peanut butter. But I’m pretty sure it would still win the “messiest baby” award today.

If you haven’t seen ‘peanut butter baby’ yet, then take two minutes out of your day to watch this hilarious sibling moment. And count your lucky stars that you don’t have this mess to clean up. Get ready for peanut butter baby time.

When Gina noticed her two children were playing quietly together in the kitchen, she figured something was up. But she never expected to find her son covered head to toe in peanut butter, thanks to his creative older sister, three-year-old Emily.

Good thing little Ethan isn’t allergic to peanuts.

Emily is clearly so proud of her “scrubbing” and Ethan is more than happy to be part of his sister’s edible sculpture.

While the video was originally posted in 2009 on Gina’s Facebook page, it has been making the rounds on social media again lately. The original video won Gina and her family a trip to Chicago to be on Oprah in 2004.

Even if it’s an oldie and Ethan and Emily, who have four other siblings, are teenagers now, it’s still a goodie. We’re sure easy-going Ethan and budding-artist Emily are still making their family laugh today.
