Leaf throwing remix

Child throwing leaves into the air
I first posted this picture last fall; we were staying at a cottage on a lovely nearby lake before our house was ready and it was a crisp fall evening. I'm posting it again as I can't get a related image out of my mind.

This same child was recently caught slyly rummaging in the pantry and went running from the room. I laughed and called him back, whereupon he threw the entire contents in his fist (butterscotch chips) up in the air.

Immediately I thought of a scene from Ocean’s Eleven when a would-be casino robber exits the casino amidst a flurry of paper notes. My son showed this same sense of idiotic panic, and it was the funniest thing I’ve seen in years. Wish I had a photo of the actual event, but this will have to do.

(What this whole little scene says about me and my effect on this child is another matter!)

I'd love to hear your thoughts
