Couch Capers

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Here is the battle I've been having all week. If I hear mad giggling or squeals of delight coming from the living room... here is what is happening:

Did you notice that hint of attitude in her face there?


She is so happy about getting that cushion off the couch!


She loves it :)


And here is where it gets really fun.


Lovin it! Don't stop me now!


Almost there...


Grab brother to join in the fun. Silly mommy thought he was the one taking the cushions off.


Ah... now let the jumping commence!



I think I have spent all weekend getting kids off the couch and putting the cushions back on. And did I mention what a tragedy it is when couch jumping time is called to a close? Does anyone know of a good jumping toy?

BUT OF COURSE! Our is the same way. He will find a way to explore something until it's completely trashed!

These were so great, I loved the sequencing!

haha. I laugh because I understand. My kids enjoy pulling all the cushion off of our couch as well. Ah well at least it reminds me to sweep underneath the cushions more than once a year. ;)

hilarious - so cute that she snuggles on the cushions! My kids used to do this - but they have been so banned lately!!!

What do you mean a good jumping toy? Isn't that what a couch is for???? That's crazy talk!

Love the pictures! They are too cute!

Wendy said...

Oh I really wish I could send you some pix of my living room right now! My kids have been doing this too!

Oh, I found one that I included in a post a while back. Here's the link. http://notesfromthesleepdeprived.blogspot.com/2008/08/twitting-with-new-friends.html

And there is NO better jumping toy that!

Too cute! Couch cushions obviously weren't meant to sit on, they were meant play with and hide under and climb on. Great series of pictures of capturing them in the act. :)

I just figure until the kids are old enough to move out, my couch is not going to be the couch I want it to be.
This was not always my view, but I finally surrendered.
That's what good parents do, right?

Would you believe all four of mine used to do that. I would get so tired of finding the cushions on the floor. I would have thought it was the older kiddo doing it too though. :)

Well I guess they are to big for Johnny Jumpers.They are the ones you hang in the doorway.That stinks my son loved his JJ.

They are so cute. We have a jumping couch in the basement, but they still try to sneak a hop or two on my 'upstairs' couch.

Jeanna said...

I'm sure there's something out there. I wonder if the Smart Pony or Smart Cycle would shift their interest.

Aaaawww...I'm PMSing and you're going to make me cry. Dang it!

Lisa~Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

oh that is too cute!! Who needs a bouncy toy, they made their own! lol

Cecily R said...

Oh, that is just CUTE!!!

I'm super jealous that your couch is so CLEAN under the cushions...I could NEVER take pictures of my couch like that and show my face in public again!!

Sorry I'm so behind getting here this time. I promise to be more on the ball this week!!
