We Did It!

We saved enough birthday, allowances and change jar money to buy one of these great jumping things!!
Here's Jedi patiently waiting his turn.
Sometimes we allow 2 at a time, but usually it ends up only one person per time and a whole set of new rules, like:

No sitting on the edge
No sitting underneath
No putting rocks on the trampoline
No putting sand on the trampoline
No jumping on your sister
No pushing your brother
OK, back to one child only!
No water bottles while jumping
No, girls cannot take off their shirts
I know it's not fair, but you cannot do it.
10 minutes each
Your times up
OK, it's your turn.
Yes all these things are said during each 10 minutes....I'm exhausted just typing this...
Yes, it's all worth it, the kiddos are also exhausted and ready for bed about a 1/2 hour earlier than usual, if I could just get supper on earlier....

  3. Love the rules. We learn as we go, don't we?

    My kids are green with envy and begging Daddy for a trampoline too!

    Not sure I have the energy to supervise. Maybe next summer!

  4. Jamie, this was just the funnest little post. I would love to have a trampoline but Lawyer Man won't let me. Sigh.
