Pretend to be Nice

Teacher-Moms, on the edge…

It’s graduation time.

We had three mini-trampolines in the living room…at the same time.  Don’t believe me?  Catch up here.

So the kids are growing up and have moved on from cartoons.  Now they watch even more ridiculous crap on Disney (which I think is the Devil) and Nickelodeon, but we still only had one TV in the house so they can’t watch it that often.

I figured if they were growing up then maybe the mini-trampolines should move on to bigger and better things as well.

So now you will be called – torture device.

knighted  (aka: I don’t like your tone, your room is a mess,

you’re right-you don’t have to do that job)

 

Getting in trouble now equated to a number of minutes you had to jump on the mini-tramp.

My standard response:  You make me tired, so I will make you tired.

I got rid of the one that didn’t squeak.  You would thing the sound would drive me crazy(er) but it comforted me knowing that they were sweating instead of me (and they couldn’t cheat if I could hear them).  They did hone the ankle bob, but I squelched that by adding more minutes.

It’s called jumping, people!  I want to see air or it doesn’t count!

Everyone was happy, and what I meant by everyone – was me!

    That’s too funny and fitting. Can’t say it’s abuse, you are getting them in shape.
