Mom Tells Little Boy To Stay Out Of Street. Bursts Into Laughter When She Sees His Next Move
Joshua Patton 1/10/2018
When children are little, their parents' commands are as firm as the law of men and gods, never to be broken or tested.
Of course, many kids don't need to ever risk their parents' wrath, especially if they have a yard to play in and their favorite toy. For one little boy, his favorite toy is a ball.
Much as the invention of the wheel revolutionized human society, the invention of the bouncy ball revolutionized human play. With just a wall to slam it off of, kids can play alone for hours. Add more kids and you have a real game on your hands.
But, as anyone who has ever played dodge ball or kick ball knows, these little round buggers sometimes act as if they have a mind of their own. This was the dilemma facing our youthful hero. After being forbidden to walk into the road in his cul-de-sac home, his favorite ball rolled out into the street.
Watching from a distance, the boy's mother can't help but laugh as she watches her son trying to figure out how to rescue his ball from the street without breaking his parents' rule.
In exasperation, he puts his hands on his hips. At one point, he leans over the curb and pumps his arms back and forth as if he could stretch himself to reach the ball. Needless to say, it doesn't work the way he expects.
The yellow soccer ball rests a little more than a foot away from the curb, but the young man can't reach it. He stretches his arm out for the ball, but doesn't come close to touching it.
The video stops short, as presumably the adults went to go help him, but the below video shows a fun bit of active problem-solving from this little boy.
Perhaps if they let him go a little longer, he might have figured out that he could lie on his stomach, hanging his body slightly over the curb and rescue his ball without violating his "no going in the street" rule.
Still this adorable little scamp got his ball back and didn't break the rules.
