brick KID in the wall?
First thing this morning, just as I was getting out of the shower, I heard bellowing from the basement, “HELP ME, PLEASE, I’M STUCK, MOM, HELP, I’M STUCK“!
Lizzy was standing outside the bathroom door looking a little worried, “um, Mom? Sam, umm did umm something kind of dumb, and he umm needs your help.”
So once again I was running around my house 1/2 naked with a towel on my head.
I headed for the basement, with just a quick peek at the front door, to make sure there were no uninvited customers waiting and watching. The coast was clear, so I headed to our dungeon like laundry room (where I’d sent Sam to find socks), only to find him firmly wedged in the wall. Keep in mind, that is a 2×4 stud on his right. The space he decided to lower himself into was only 4” wide!
What were you thinking dude?
I pulled and pulled and lifted and pulled … I pulled until my towel fell down (oops!) and then I pulled again. I couldn’t get him out!
Then I got my camera, because I knew that he wasn’t dying, and when you’re a member of blog365 you have to take advantage of every photo op you can (it’s kind of like being a paparazzi — mamarazzi I guess you’d call it), even at the expense and discomfort of your children.
“Just hang on Sam and I’ll wake up Dad … he’ll have to CUT YOU OUT!”
“Oh quit your bawling, I’m just kidding!”
Dad to the rescue — just a few minutes later the cabinets were no longer securely fixed to the 2×4 studs and Sam was FREE!
I am hoping it’s a quiet weekend! Cross your fingers for me, OK?
