A mini trampoline.
I bought one today under the disguise of it being a fun workout routine for me while I watch the Food Network. It seems that it is better suited for my 4 year old.
She has been jumping for 2 hours straight now. She has not had one tantrum since she started jumping. She just jumps. She still talks nonstop... but she has to take talking breaks in order to catch her breath.
I was able to watch Oprah today without interruption (and is was a good one too... it was about suburban exotic dancers. Made me think twice about what my neighbors may actually be doing to pay the bills.) all because Emma has been jumping her little heart out and not asking me to entertain her.
Sometimes she jumps the farts right out of her... better out then in I say. Nothing stops her. I may have to call the World Record people.
I tried jumping for a while and thought my uterus was going to fall out. Ah, to be four again. She is going to sleep sooo well tonight! Yeah!
