Sky Diving

Come to find out Baby has been teaching the younger boys in our neighborhood fun stunts. Yesterday a friend told me about her 4-year-old and his adventures in trying out Baby's cool stunts.

My friend was on a business call when her boy comes in sobbing, obviously hurt, and carrying a plastic bag. "What's wrong little man?"

Sobbing, "I jumped out the window of the playhouse." Let me tell you the playhouse is Utah's version of a tree house since we rarely have any trees large enough for tree houses. So her 4-year-old jumped probably 8-10 feet to the ground.

"Why would you do that?" she asked baffled as to why her boy would jump that far.

"Baby said if I got a plastic bag I could parachute out the window," he replied, choking between sobs.

"Did you see him do that or did he just tell you about it?" she asked.

"He just told me I could. I just wanted to parachute!" She hugged him and laughed.

And then she tried to teach him the lesson about how Boys Love to Talk Things Up and Don't Believe Everything You Hear, you know, little boy locker room talk.

I'm not sure what is more astonishing: the fact that baby taught him how to do it, or the fact that he actually thought it would work.

Sound like you're going to have your hands full! But hey, now I know what to do with all those plastic bags I've accumulated.

I didn't think Baby was old enough to convince someone to jump out of a window. He's pretty good.
