I’ll bet you didn’t know that your brain could knock your eyeballs out if someone shook you too hard.
No? Well, don’t feel bad because I didn’t know that either until Hannah enlightened me the other day.
I don’t know how to tell this story without making it sound like my kids have been victims of shaken baby syndrome, so I’ll just lay it out there, okay? Don’t report me, please!
At bed time, the girls like for me to bounce them up and down on the bed while they are laying flat on their backs. So, I would kinda grab a hold of their shoulders and proceed to bounce them up and down saying “Go to sleep you little punks!” over and over. I would get them as high up off the bed as I could while they just squealed and giggled their little heads off.
So, then it occurs to me that this is probably not the best idea. I mean it’s not like I’m violently shaking them back and forth and letting their heads whip around or anything, but still. Yeah, I know “Mother of the Year”.
I explained to them that maybe I shouldn’t do that in case it might hurt their heads or something and Hannah says to me, “Yeah, actually Mama, our brains could rattle around and knock our eyeballs out onto the floor where they would roll under the bed and get all dusty.”
So, there you have it, everything you could ever possibly want to know about the power of your brain, from my 4 year-old. Your welcome.
