Let me just explain that when Little Peach was born, I discovered that if I bounced with her on the big exercise ball that it helped sleep time go smoother. I love bouncing on the ball with my Little Peach. I had planned to do it as long as I could, since I knew one day that my Baby Girl would be to old to bounce on the ball with Mamma. Well this evening, we were bouncing on the ball after an exhausting day....All of the sudden, I kid you not, the darn thing popped! It was loud....POP! I landed flat on my butt. Luckily I had a firm hold on the Peach. It scared the bejeezus out of her! I was able to calm her down and get her to sleep. I don't know weather to buy another ball, or just except the fact that we have gotten to big for the ball? Poor Mamma, I wasn't ready to give up the bounce just yet!
