Jumping Beans

A while back the kids discovered some new fun available to them in the family room - jumping from the ottoman to the chair and back. The day they discovered this happened to be one where I was too tired to care. But now it's become a habit. And while I don't really like it, I'm not sure there's much I can do about it at this point since I've been letting them do it for a good month now. And besides, it is pretty cute and they do have a really good time doing it.

Anyway, here is a cute video of them from yesterday. Naomi and Asher had been playing together nicely for a while at this point (which is rare). I hadn't been paying much attention to them and when I turned around I saw this huge mess. The video shows my "interrogation" about what was going on.

Yeah, when you say "ready set jump" you definitely can't stop it :)
At least they haven't figure out yet, how to move the ottoman in between the couch and the chair, to make a 3-way jump obstacle course.

What a cute video. Glad I'm not the only one who let's certain things go on those days when I'm "too tired to care." Our boys prefer to take all the cushions off the couches, make a tower, and do body slams onto each other. Then jump on the couch springs, shaking up all the crumbs and change that are hiding inside. Hope that makes you feel a bit better about the chair-ottoman leaping :)
btw, nice to see how well your giveaway is going! Your jewelry just keeps getting better and better!
