Did you know the expression, little pitchers have big ears, referring to eavesdropping children, came from medieval times when the handles on pitchers were called ears.
I did know that one - my parents told me when I was a little pitcher.
AND Woot! Woot! for knowing the answer;)
When I was quite young, a neighbour talking to my mother said, 'Look out, big ears is listening'. I was and used to enjoy the hearing gossip even if I didn't understand it all.
Sounds like you were a curious child, Andrew:)
Hah! I have actually heard this one before, I think I read it in a book! Hugs, Valerie
Woot! Woot! Good job!
I always thought that expression was Little pictures have big ears. As in artwork on the wall. Learn something new every day

Heh. Oh yes.
