Oh, the stories we have to tell...
I'm sorry, I just have to share! LOL! I am smiling now just thinking about what I was told when I came home this afternoon from dropping off a cake.
Well, I get home from delivering a cake (more info on that later!) to be told by the little boy of the family we are living with the "funniest thing", "Elijah was jumping on the trampoline naked!" Me--"WHAT???" Completely at a loss as to how in the world this might have happened and starting to laugh as I imagined my scrawny little four year old jumping on the trampoline in his birthday suit. I immediately headed inside to get the full story from my husband.
Apparently, shortly after being put down for a nap (according to my little guy) he had to go potty. He naps in our bedroom since his little brother naps in their room and naps don't usually happen if they are in there together. Anyway, there is a bathroom in our room so he went without Luke knowing. Well, he apparently had a hard time pulling his pants up.
Now, I don't know how he went from having a hard time pulling his pants up to thinking it would be great to go outside and jump on the trampoline (without telling anyone--aaaaccckkk!) but that is exactly what happened. Our bedroom has an outside door that leads to a shared driveway with our neighbors (with whom we are so thankful for as they let our kids play on their trampoline and all their outdoor play equipment). The trampoline and playscape are just seconds away from that door.
SOOOO, since he couldn't get his pants back on, he decided to just go jump on the trampoline.........in his birthday suit. He's four. Just turned. Oh, Lordy! LOL! Normally, I either take a nap with him or am in the room working at my scrap table. Today, I had to deliver a cake during that time so I wasn't there.
Apparently, a neighborhood boy saw him from across the backyard (there is a low fence on one side) and came running to our door. He was out of breath (or just shocked) but this was what he said, "Boy...naked......jumping on trampoline!" LOL!!!
Luke proceeds to check in on Elijah, and low and behold he is not in bed. He goes out the bedroom door and, sure enough, there is carefree Elijah, happily jumping on the trampoline, in nothing but his birthday suit--by himself, nobody around (thank God!).
We now plan on installing a lock that he can't reach. :)
