This is the adorable moment a toddler managed to get his potty seat stuck around his head after he tried to wear it as a hat.
Two-year-old Lennox McElwee, from Bainbridge, Indiana, is often found getting himself into trouble.
He recently pulled his best stunt yet by getting a potty seat stuck around his neck, despite his father’s warning.
His mother Jordan Adams, 34, and father, Matthew McElwee, 35, immediately jumped into super parent mode.
After Lennox began calling for help the process of removing the seat from the toddler’s neck began.

Despite taking mere seconds to put on, it took Matthew around five minutes to remove the potty seat, and with each passing attempt, Lennox grew more worried.
However, after taking the seat apart, and with some resistance from his son’s forehead, Matthew managed to pull the seat from around Lennox’s neck.
Jordan could not help but laugh as her toddler struggled with the seat around his neck.
She said: ‘While trying to potty train our son, he decided to play with the potty seat and wear it like a hat. He then realised his head could fit and pulled it down.
‘Our reaction was, ‘Told you so!’ We were trying not to giggle. We all had a good laugh after we got it removed.
‘The potty seat slipped on in like a half second and was stuck for maybe five minutes.
‘Prior to him pulling it down, he was warned by his dad that it would get stuck.
‘Things like this happen often, but this was the first and so far last time of getting a potty seat stuck on his head.’
But Lennox is far from the first little one to encounter such difficulties from a potty lid.
Last year, firefighters came to the aid of a toddler who got his head stuck in a potty lid while his exhausted mum was taking a nap.
Wyatt Taylor, 1, was supposed to be sleeping next to mum Courtney Taylor on Thursday in a north Adelaide home.

But he pulled down a potty seat that was on his grandmother’s wall unit and put it over his head.
After Ms Taylor awoke, she saw the strife he had got himself into and rang emergency after being unable to get it off, or get help nearby.
Ms Taylor told Daily Mail Australia: ‘[I was] definitely freaked out but I just made sure I kept him calm until helped arrived.’
Wyatt’s grandmother, Donna Taylor and the mum tried to see if the potty lid would come off his head but it made him very uncomfortable and he cried.
‘I tried to see how far it would go but once I knew it was completely stuck on his head I didn’t try anymore until help arrived,’ Ms Taylor said. ‘I didn’t want to pry it off him as he was distressed enough.’
It wasn’t causing the boy pain to keep the lid on but the family tried to find tools to take the lid apart.
‘Unfortunately we are moving and a lot of stuff went into storage – we had packed our screwdrivers,’ Ms Taylor said.
They knocked on neighbour’s doors but when no one answered they called triple-0 – while they waited the boy fell asleep with the lid attached.
The fire truck arrived with sirens blaring and lights flashing as the emergency workers thought the child had his head stuck in a proper toilet.
The emergency service crew saw the funny side of it and soon unscrewed the lid to set Wyatt free.
Once it was off, it was the toddler’s turn for a big nap.
‘Kids definitely keep you on your feet that’s for sure,’ the mum said. ‘It was definitely embarrassing but a laugh, and something I’ll never let him forget.’
