All hail the magical Jumperoo,
The mystical ring of neglect(-eroo).
The giver of time, the taker of stress,
The circumference of confinement that creates no mess.
It traps all the babies with its rainforest joys,
Fuck knows why I bothered with any other toys?!
It lets you sit down, use both hands, and pretend,
You’ve got your shit together, Jumperoo is your best friend.
Who cares if it takes up more space than your settee,
When you get to drink an ACTUAL REAL-LIFE HOT CUP OF TEA.
Yes, all hail the wonderful Jumperoo.
Respect it or fall victim to the Jumper-poo.
Love it and cherish your infant-restraining device,
Knowing the Jumperoo SAVED YOUR LIFE.
I only recently discovered the jumperoo, too late! I’m pretty pissed off no-one told me about it!Reply
That is no fair! Lol x it’s a life saver…Reply
Commiserations! Said goodbye to our rainforest friend last week as our second (and last) baby has grown out of it – this summed it up beautifully! Fantastic blog, been reading it since my first baby and you’ve made me laugh an awful lot!Reply
Aww x thank you for reading hunny 🙂 let’s drink to our collective post-Jumperoo trauma… Pahahaha xxReply
You’re a bloody genius!Reply
Lol! Thank you! *blushes*Reply
Ok so my child (with the exception of his older brother) is the only child in the history of all children to cry every. Single. Time. He’s in the jumperoo?!?! Come onnnnn… I need my Fricken arm back!!!Reply
oh lord – I’d heard this could happen but assumed it was just a myth! lol x poor you! xxReply
this made me cry with laughter!!! thank you! 🙂Reply
pahaha x you are welcome *curtsies*Reply
Ha! I love this. The Jumperoo is currently giving me back a little piece of my sanity I am hoping my 6 month old doesn’t grow out of it too quickly… Great Blog.xReply
It’s the way forward babes! Lol xxReply
My littlest one was too big to have a jumperoo by the time she was old enough to use one – so we used a travel cot to make a play pen instead… worked perfectly until she started climbing out.Reply
Ha 😉 these things only work for short periods of time don’t they!! Lol xxxReply
