Running with wreckless abandon, unabashed glee and endless bounds of energy.
We lay on the bed observing the naked kid swirling around our bedroom, my wife and I smiling and laughing at the fact that this small human feels no need to be clothed and in fact prefers to be naked whenever possible. What if the rest of us were like that I wonder.
Then, suddenly; He stops running, stands there looking bemused and staring at me. I pry myself up from my comfy recline and approach him asking “what’s up buddy?” - And then, Blammo, I see it, LOGS ON THE FLOOR!
He has shit approximately 3 logs on the floor, it’s like a poo poo train. Luckily the wooden floors are resiliant to this type of treatment (more on that later) I continue my discovery to find that he is soaked in urine and has indeed stepped in one of the logs. D Luke looks at me with expressions of confusion & concern. I laugh and make sure to tell the boy “I’m not laughin at you, but it’s funny what you did”
This is an amazing moment in the learning curve that is the constant plight of a 1 yr old. He has just received another lesson in cause and effect, if you crap on the floor, pee all over, then step in one of the logs, your foot feels squishy and funny & your legs are wet.
So it’s tag team cleanup for me and mommy, to the tub! get the mop! I mop the floor incessantly giggling. Ahhh, my life has sure changed, just a few years ago I remember a similar scene, although the players were drunken idiotic adults, and my wife did not find it funny.
