Last month we sold our home and after an exhaustive search for a new home, we ended up empty handed. With interest rates as low as they are, and looking for a home in fall – it was slim pickins. We found an apartment to hold us while we continued our house search and for the last month have crammed 6 of us into half the space that we had in our house.
Despite all efforts of reducing and stuffing our excessiveness in storage, it’s just tight quarters around this neck of the woods. Add in that 2 of the 6 are toddlers with INSANE amounts of energy…. yeah, I think you get where I am going. CRAZY TOWN.
So what do you do when you can’t get out of your home and your toddlers are spinning around like the Tasmanian Devil? We found a toy that is helping….
Diggin JumpSmart Trampoline
The JumpSmart Trampoline is the perfect indoor excerciser for children. It’s triangular shape makes it so easy to store, and it has a split handle for extra support. Weight limit is 80 lbs. Bright colored bumper pads wipe clean easily. Dimensions are 37.75″ x 42.75″ x 35.50″. May be used indoors or out, though not meant to be left outdoors overnight.
We were able to set it up in our kitchen and for the last week it’s been a bounce fest. We have a rug underneath it so it’s not noisy on the tile floor. We have a garage underneath us, thankfully so we aren’t banging the ceiling of our downstairs neighbors.
Amazon has the Diggin JumpStart Trampoline $59.99 with free shipping. The trampoline requires a 5×5 space and really does help exert that pinned up energy these toddlers have! Especially with the upcoming winter months
Each day this month, I am talking about the gratitude I have for these toddlers.
Today I am thankful for health. While somedays I shake my head wondering where this energy and non-stop-ness comes from, I am so thankful that my boys are healthy.
