My friend Sophie (of the children’s brand Oeuf) might be the coolest mom ever, since she hung a trapeze in her Brooklyn living room. Her kids like to “swing really high and scare people,” she says. “They love to triple-dog-dare our poor guests to do knee hangs.” I interviewed her for Martha Stewart Living, and you can read the full interview here, if you’d like.

P.S. Alex and I took a trapeze class and bombed:)
