Break out the crisco
This morning I looked into the foyer area and I saw Peanut attempting to put his head between the railings of the bannister. I don't know why I didn't stop him other than I remember thinking that his big noggin wouldn't fit through. But alas, it did fit in, but not so much out. Peanut started crying and yelling stuck. Papa Bear and I raced to his rescue while trying not to laugh at his predicament. Papa Bear picked up Peanut's lower body so that he was parallel to the floor and I tried to bow the wooden spindles of the bannister as much as possible to give his large ears room to get through. Papa Bear put it best when he said that it resembled a 3 Stooges skit. We finally freed him from his wooden cage without having to break out the crisco, but it was a close call. The rest of the day he kept walking by the railing and yelling "stuck, stuck". We are hopeful that he learned his lesson but only time will tell. Peanut sometimes has to learn the hard way a couple of times before it sinks in. I just hope that Papa Bear is home if he tries it again because I am not sure I can manage that 3 stooges maneuver without him!
