And With a Loud Clunk...

...he climbed out of the crib and landed on his head! We own several Eric Carle books. Our very first one was The Very Clumsy Click Beetle. The young click beetle is trying to learn how to flip through the air and then land on his feet. He tries several times, but lands on his back each time then finally, "with a loud click" he does 3 graceful somersaults and lands on his feet. It's a great story and our kids love it!

We don't have a click beetle at our house, we have a clunk beetle. Yesterday he tried his hand at a graceful somersault out of his bed. Head first. On the floor. He hardly cried. It sounded painful. I think if it happens again we are going to have to get one of these. Maybe he could learn to land on his feet. :)
