When my oldest son was about 3ish, he had tossed a tiny little rabbit (toy rabbit - he doesn't throw real bunnies) up in our living room and it conveniently landed on a swag hanging over the entry door to the room. He quickly assessed the situation and formulated a brilliant plan.
1. Stand on the back of the couch (perpendicular to said door & around 6-7' away)
2. Hold strings to the shades at the window behind the couch
3. Go to far end of couch (even more feet away from swag over door)
4. Run along back of couch and swing (Tarzan-style) over to the swag and rescue little rabbit
Sadly, his mother walked into the room just before step #4 commenced (or maybe it would have been sadder had I not). Needless to say, there was no Tarzan yell or wild swing in the living room that day. I was kind enough to rescue the rabbit, so everyone was safe and sound.
