Nick is always looking for ways to have fun and most of the time it involves something physical.
Nick craves motion (I'm sure its related to sensory issues - although he's not the type to spin until he hurls. His symptoms are more mild) so last Christmas Santa brought him a mini-tramp (the ones adults are supposed to use for exercise) so he could burn off extra energy.
Its helped...and a year later, all four kids still give the tramp a regular workout.
Unfortunately, it hasn't filled all of Nick's sensory needs. If he's not jumping off of something, he's rolling around on the floor.
Thankfully its generally safe (he's not a thrill seeker), not done inappropriately and most of the time is just plain entertaining.
The minute we moved into this house three months ago, Nick found a new hobby.
