Getting Stuck

Do you have a child that always gets stuck or wedged in strange and creative gaps and spaces?

We have one of those – don’t know how he gets in, but in he goes – and then once he’s in, he’s stuck. He would do well at the Cango Caves with those tiny squeeze-through places that sane people give a wide berth…. although not so much with the getting stuck thing!

He’s a brave boy and brave boys love to explore, to discover and to conquer! He’s been stuck in the bottom shelf of the cupboard: “Mommy, I can’t get out!”

Today he was stuck between 2 bookshelves with his legs stuck under the rebounder (small trampoline). You can see the gap below – he was well and truly wedged!

The most ingenious was when he was stuck face down on his bed with his backpack half around his arms – unable to move or turn over – just a muffled yelling for Mom. I didn’t ask and he didn’t explain.

This was just the first 3 years 🙂

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1 v 26
