Face Plant

I would like to share the following story about my #2 Son taking multiple face plants into the floor. In fact, I even have pictures he did it so much. Really! He started with taking out handfuls of clean white laundry. Leaving just a few. Then he climbed into the basket. So far, no problem… he is clean, his clothes are clean, and he is occupied while I fold the other load.

Then he gets on his knees, hands on the side and leans. Over he goes, face plant into the floor. I thought for sure he would have a bloody nose and squished fingers. I run over about the time he lifts up his head… he’s laughing. Hard. I stopped dead in my tracks. It was the cutest face with that laughter. He works the basket back into the upright position, gets back in and … you got it… does it again. And again and again.

With every effort, he gets a little smarter at catching himself and not letting his nose hit the floor. These pictures are towards the end, when he has it pretty down pat. (Click picture to enlarge it).
