I particularly appreciated this:

"Young children often stand, jump and wiggle while watching television", since T. recently and somewhat laboriously attempted to move the trampoline from the dining room to the living room so he could watch TV while jumping on it. I helped him. R. objected, and I said, look, there's just no point. It's February vacation week anyway. To compensate, we moved a bunch of toys back to the the dining room where the trampoline formerly resided.
