There’s nothing quite like the sound of a child crying when they let their balloon go and it’s out of reach. No matter how many times you tell them, ‘Keep hold of the balloon honey or it’ll fly away’ they don’t listen and off it goes, leaving a screaming child far behind.
One dad had a novel idea after trying to get the balloon down with all manner of implements to no avail. He threw his son up who promptly grabbed the balloon. A bit too close the ceiling for comfort, but hey! Little boy reunited with balloon.
A happy ending all round.
