living and learning, or not really?

matthew monkeyThis is my youngest son.   He is four, and is the definition of some one who does not often live and learn.  Why do I say this.

My little “monkey”, his nickname, has a habit which he does each time we have moved into this particular complex, our third time btw.  He likes to try and put his head between the stairs, as you can see here.

However, he goes one step farther by getting his head between the stairs.  This leads to the inevitable, stuck head.

When he was 17 months old I found him hanging by his hands on one of the stairs dangling.  It was very frightening, no one else but him has ever done anything even so close to that.

Then we moved the second time, he decides to get his head stuck more or less doing the same sort of thing, but now he was 2 years old.

So 2 years later we move back into another building in the complex, on the day we are moving in, guess what.  Head stuck once again.

It really makes you wonder if they remember what happened before.  This is of course only the tip of the iceberg with this kiddo.  He lives up to his nickname completely.  I am still amazed he has never broken anything yet.

    That is really funny. I always wonder about that with my son, who is now 8. You think they would learn, but the temptation is just too exciting sometimes!

    yep, we have six, most are fairly sane (most of the days) compared to this boy.

    oh and in case it is not clear, he is looking at me hanging off the top stair and looking through a lower one.
