My kids tend to get a little antsy when they have a lot of energy and no where to get it out. A lot of times I will see this in the evening right before bed time. They want to run, or jump. They LOVE to wrestle with daddy in the evenings. I also know they need BIG play when they are leaning on the coffee table and swinging their little feet, or hanging between the coffee table and desk!
So the other night, I went and gathered all of our pillows, blankets and even the toddler mattress off the floor, and piled them all in the living room. They then get to jump off the couch into the big pile. This is HUGE treat, because it's the only time we let them stand on the couch.
They both slept really good that night!
