With the fall TV season upon us, there are a lot of great shows out there including several comedies. But there are none better than the reality/comedy show going on right in our own home! It usually happens when you least expect it and don’t have a camera handy.
The other night, after bath time, my 5-year-old son was wearing his towel. It’s the hooded kind with the hole in the center of the towel. He thinks he’s a comedian and thought he would pull the towel partially over his head and put on a little show for us.
Much to his dismay, the towel got stuck between his mouth and nose as he was trying to pull it over (like to take it off). He was still trying to be silly, but you could tell he was a bit frustrated as well. He proceeded to weave back and forth in the bedroom trying to escape the terry cloth trap. He was tugging and straining and pulling.
My husband and I were both standing right there, ready to jump in … right after we stopped laughing! Our little show-off looked just like a possum that got its head stuck in a peanut butter jar! He musta danced around for five minutes before he finally freed himself and revealed a devilish little grin.
Ahhh, I needed that. There’s nothing like child-initiated, gut-busting laughter.
