$10 TRAMPOLINE

Our trampoline was a yard sale bargain.  We figured for ten bucks we'd get a little fun for the summer.  That was over 3 years ago and the kids are still bouncing strong.  Even without an enclosure we have only had one accident which resulted in a skinned cheek.  Some people I know who have an enclosure have so far suffered 2 broken bones and several abrasions.  I think some people let their guard down when they have an enclosure.  We're extra careful because we don't have one.

      

I lose a lot of time in the back yard during trampoline season.  One of the strict rules we have is that an adult must be present at all times.  Needless to say nothing gets done in the house during daylight hours in the summer.  Do you really think that I mind?  Hahahaha!  Nope, not at all!

Kids can't get shaken baby syndrome from jumping on the trampoline can they?  My kids spend so much time on that darn thing that their brains have got to be rattling around in there.  Hmmmmm, that just might be why they are the way they are!  I don't go on the trampoline.  Dickidoo did once and the kids teased him unrelentingly because they said the trampoline touched the ground while he was jumping.  I find its easier to laugh with them than to become another victim of their laughter.  Besides I wouldn't want to shake up my goods!  I'd probably knock myself out with my boobs once they start bouncing up and down with the momentum.  Gravity is never kind to ladies of my physique.

I don't go on our trampoline either.  My body isn't 13 anymore and it never fails to remind me...  last time I messed up my back jumping on that thing, I said 'No more, thank you...'  hee hee...
