Sometimes I forget just how easy it is to entertain a toddler. Mama’s being silly? Golden.
Yes, that’s a balloon on our 10 foot ceiling. It’s like the Energizer Bunny of balloons left over from our daughter’s surgery 2 months ago. Yesterday, the baby wanted the “ba” on the ceiling. Because I’m lazy, I decided that jumping to grab the balloon (off of the 10 foot ceiling) would be much more efficient than grabbing a chair, or a broom, or whatever to retrieve it.
So I jumped, and I grabbed.
My little guy nearly fell over with hysterical laughter. And then we had a game. Apparently throwing the balloon up to the ceiling so mama will jump is much more entertaining than playing with the actual balloon. Throw. Jump. Retrieve. Hysterical laughter. Repeat. (I’m so sorry I don’t have photos of that process for you!)
Over, and over, and over. Except for the times it was Jump. Laugh. Jump. Laugh. because Mama couldn’t reach the balloon. That was fun, too.
A simple reminder that it’s the little things. Don’t be afraid to get silly with your babes. Live the moment and laugh. Hysterically.
