How to Catch a Baby

I got to teach early morning seminary this morning.  Ray played a great trick on me, too.  As I was driving home, I called to see if Levin had woken up.  He gasped, "Oh shoot!  I forgot I was watching him.  I got in my routine this morning and I'm already at the office."  He said it so convincingly that I was... convinced.  He even let out a chuckle when he was telling me; as if he couldn't believe he'd forgotten.  That chuckle was what tricked me.

This got me to thinking, however.  Should we ever lose Levin, how will we catch him?

I think I've found the answer.

How to catch a baby:

With jewels.

At seminary, part of the lesson had us all doing 10 push-ups and you have to wear a dress to teach Seminary.  That's why I wore my heavy-duty black tights.   I figured it would be less traumatizing for the students to see their teacher doing push-ups with them if she was wearing black tights with her skirt... almost like wearing black work-out spandex... kind of.

Even his breathing is adorable.

I love that you spent all that time preparing the bait. so funny. I caught myself doing something similar with Derrick today, only it was with a big red bouncy ball.

Hahahahahaha!!! Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard! I love the part about half-way through when he looks at you like "I know you're tricking me mom," and then he just says oh well and keeps chasing it. Haha I'm so glad you video'd that.

I'm with Rachel. I thought his breathing was just so sweet. I love how that one leg keeps going up in the air, too.

I wanted Levin to catch it in the end, but then worried about him choking on it if he did. Being a grandmother is not as easy as I thought, I worry more than I thought I would.

I'm very impressed you could do the push-ups with the kids. I love your tights.

I think you're training your son to have expensive taste.
