“Let’s jump on the bed” was, as a child, an un-turn-down-able invitation. My brother and I LOVED jumping on beds — as we got older our favorite version was slaloming back and forth between two twin beds in my grandmother’s guest room, gleefully destroying bedspreads and mattress springs. Watching Declan and Grey jump on the bed (or try to in Grey’s case), with all the exuberance of first time sky divers, you see the magic of the play instinct at work — they are developing motor skills, getting a vigorous aerobic workout, and having the time of their lives, all without a monthly membership fee, from the comfort of home. I think this fits squarely in the “things that we can learn from kids” category.
