Mom I'm really stuck !!

So River though it would be funny to put his foot in his piggy bank ( which is an over sized canning jar). He comes down the stairs and says "Hey mom look at my foot it's stuck " "Ha ha".
I completely ignore him, and tell him to quit trying to walk with it around the house especially on the tile. (It is solid glass).
So I leave to go pick up Micaela from school. We walk in the door and River is laying sprawled out on the floor with his foot still in the jar....I get mad because I told him to take it off so he could get his homework done. He proceeds to tell me "mom it's really stuck and it's starting hurt". I'm like what ever if you got in you can get it out!
So I decided I would pull it off myself. Not such a good idea : ( He starts screaming right after we both hear a pop in his ankle....kinda gross! so I'm like lets get some butter and smear it all over your ankle so it will slide out better. Not such a good idea either. River starts running up the stairs stripping on every step. Yelling at me to stop!!! So the only thing left to do is break the damn thing off. So I told him I'm going to get the hammer out of the garage. Through this whole event Micaela and her friend Dania are laughing and making fun of him. Which doesn't go over well with him so he tries attacking her.
Mean while I'm looking for the hammer Micaela proceeds to tell him "your going to die, because when mom breaks the jar all the glass is going to cut up your leg so bad you'll bleed to death!" I get to his room and River is hysterically screaming " I'm going to die, I'm going to die" Needless to say He didn't die or loose a drop of blood.
He might have a slight phobia tight small places though. Hee Heee
