Very useful item

For his birthday, my MiL sent J-man a fantastic kid-sized trampoline. It's called the My First Jumper. It really is a lot of fun for the kids. They've all had a blast on it. The nifty thing is that it's good until 60 lbs so even the big kids have had a go.

Here it is at it's great unveiling.Today - we discovered a GREAT use for it. Actually, G discovered this nifty trick days ago. Today, it really came in handy.

I think we'll call it the trampo-cot.

G positioned the pillow and his blankets so he could watch Mini-Me play - they were playing together actually. He would tell her what to do and she would do it. It worked out really well, they were playing Tonka Construction 2. G did get to feeling better today and decided he'd rather play himself.

Which left the trampo-cot open for new occupancy.
J-man, who had been sitting beside Mini-Me all morning, decided that he'd give it a try.

With the limited seating in the Laundry Pile, I'm really glad that my MiL sent us this (way back in April). It has made a wonderful extra seat. Today it was a cot and when they start feeling better, they can bounce off their energy. What a wonderful gift it has been.

Hee, hee! You noticed the shirt, did ya? I'm an eco-warrior! There, I said it. I recycle my paper and plastics, I don't use anything in the garden that isn't organic, and I drive a fuel efficient car until we can at least afford a hybrid. Happy?
But I still use the microwave to warm my coffee when I don't get to drink it right away. ;o)
When I worked at a circus camp, the trampolines were the best place for an afternoon nap! Better than the crash mats.
Peace and Laughter,

That IS a great seat! We used to have one of those, but without the handle, when my 2 olders were little. They also liked sitting on it while watching TV and they liked using it for a picnic table, too.
I'm sorry you've all been so sick. Praying you are all better quickly! Holly

Hello Mr.Potato Head!
I was hoping you had posted your results. You should stop by 40winkzzz. She also had Mr. Potato Head.
I like being Dali. I also like singing Don't Worry, Be Happy. And being dubbed an unschooler takes a lot of pressure off!
Peace and Laughter,
from your classically unschooled friend!
