The jumping game & Day 112. 253 Days Left.

Addison likes to jump on the sofa. No matter how many times I try to stop her, she just never stops. I am afraid that she is going to fall down and get hurt (she has suffered one concussion- quite enough for this mama). So now, to avoid that, I yell & scream to make her stop. (We, including my neighbors, all know how well I yell)

This morning, as soon as she woke up, she ran over and pounced onto the sofa. She asked for her morning chocolate milk and requested I put on her Moose & Zee music videos (a DVD collection, daddy made, of her favorite Nick Jr. and Disney channel music videos). I happily obliged, looking forward to so quiet time while the kiddos drank their milk and watched a little TV. While in the kitchen, responding to the chocolate mile request, I hear laughing. A lot of laughing… followed by squealing. This much excitement can only mean one thing…
Seeing her, Jackson started doing the same. I told them to stop but nope, they continued. I tried to distract them but it didn’t work either. Then I yelled. Jackson stopped but she kept laughing & jumping. I screamed “Addison stop jumping on the goddamn sofa NOW!” Yes, one of those proud parenting moments.

She laughed (apparently I am funny when I yell or I do it so often it is just pointless) and jumped landing on her butt, smiled at me and continued watching her video.

I head back into the kitchen to grab their sippy cups of milk (chocolate for Addison) and a bowl of grapes. Should I have been at all surprised when I came out to find this…

He jumped down as soon as I came out. As I turned my back to reach for the camera I could see he was getting ready. again.

Happy Friday!

Ha! Try saying "sure jump on the couch" see if that stops them ;) it's not as fun when mom says do it!

i just tried searching "stop toddler from jumping on couch" guess google thought this sounded like more fun! Loved the video. My 4 yr old son thought it was him.

hahahaha! Love that you admit saying "goddamn" think we have all been there at some point. At least I have. I do have to agree your kids are super cute!

Thank you SO much for confirming to my mommy panic that I'm not alone in the "crazy kids that jump and walk on the couch near the glass top family room table and make mommy so nervous she screams and yells constantly to get them to stop...and yet they still keep doing it anyway" club. It must just be a kid thing. Or perhaps you're right and the screaming from us happens all too often that it's lost its effectiveness.

Good luck! :)

Many Blessings,
Rosann
