My kids are fidgeters! Umm…they come by it quite naturally, though. When I sit to watch TV, I crochet or color or play on my phone. I always need to be “doing” something. My hands have to stay busy. If not, I might just fall asleep.

Isaac, like me, is a pacer. He walks while he talks. Emma is a foot-tapper. Her knees are bouncing all the time.
