Did your kid ever do anything that made you think "how is this kid gonna survive?"

When my youngest son, who is now 17 was about 18 months old, he got ahold of a key. We had those little plastic plug covers, but he managed to pry one off. He stuck the key in the light socket, and it blew him back against the other wall! He got up, shook himself off,and tried to do it again, when we caught him! Stuns me that he made it to 17. LOL.

  • Oh yeah, mine will do the running around in circles thing, and then say "I FALL!" and just drop down, without trying to catch himself on his hands, kind of like Lucky's brother. I'm telling you, it HAS to be a boy thing...

  • My 2 1/2 year old occasionally will put a bucket over his head and just randomly start running, usually ending up with him banging his head into a wall... For the life of me I can't figure out why he would do that! Even though, I start laughing every time, he looks so ridiculous doing it, heh.

  • It's amazing isn't it? And, you wonder, how on earth will this kid survive, but they are so much tougher than we think. That cracked me up to read about your son.

  • I wonder if it's a boy thing... I never really hear about girls doing stupid stuff like that!

  • I've never had this issue with my daughter thank God lol...but my little brother used to fall on purpose off the top of the bunk bed without putting his hands out to try and catch himself or anything...just take a nose dive off the bed...I don't get it
