The day before New Year's we went to a fun kids event that was a countdown to noon. They were so excited to each get a balloon on the way out that we had to come home and play with them right away. Sara thought it was best used like an exercise ball, while Adam preferred the punching ball approach. Adam's popped that night when he tried to bite it but Sara's is actually still holding up. It's a challenge sometimes for them to share it but we might as well start practicing early.
