Adorable Little Boy Does The Silliest Belly Flop Of All Time
Cailyn Finkel 7/23/2018
A warm breeze is blowing, the barbeque is crackling and the family is over for a fun day in the summer sun! But when it came time to jump into the pool for a quick swim, Mom and her two boys did something unusual.
Instead of wading into the water gently, the trio lined up on along the side of the pool and counted down. Mom and her boys thought getting into the warm water this way would be fun - they had no idea it would be a challenge for the smallest participant...
Mom was the first to show her boys how to dive in. She carefully pointed her hands above her head, stood up straight and leaned into the pool water. Her children watched in awe as she slipped into the crystal-clear water like a dolphin.
How could someone be so graceful?
Next, it was time for Big Brother to give it a shot. He mimicked her movements and was also able to dive majestically into the pool. While it wasn't as precise as Mom's dive, it did the trick!
After two successful dive attempts, Little Brother was next. Even though he just watched Mom and Big Brother dive into the aquamarine water with the gracefulness of a swan, he was nervous. He was too small and too inexperienced to pull off a feat like this!
But, they did look like they were having fun splashing around and playing Marco Polo together. Alright! He took a deep breath, summoned his courage, and "dove" in.
Sadly, Little Brother's hands failed to make it above his head. Without another way to guide his body, Little Brother toppled right over and did the most precious belly flop of all time. Big Brother and Mom rushed to his side - but when he surfaced, a smile met their concerned faces.
While his first dive wasn't exactly successful, it was a great lesson on how not to jump into the pool!
