Same here! Our living room, dining room, kitchen and hallway form one big loop that the kids do laps around constantly and part of it is hardwood so the slip and bang into things a lot. Aidan is always jumping on and into the couch and chairs. He is pretty accident prone and already has had stitches twice and broke his elbow once. His legs are always covered in bruises. We have a sit and spin he likes to spin on and I have a big therapy ball to bounce on too. We have a rule that the top bunk is only for sleeping in because he has already fallen off it once before.
