So I definitely know some bonding has happened, as Sheena no longer crabs at me unless I am trying to annoy her. She'll hop onto my hand and run up my arm when I stick my hand in the cage. Unfortunately, when she is out of the cage, she is a little spaz.I try and reach over to pet her, and she will lose her mind and scatter. She usually jumps to my bed and then runs off to explore my room. If I try and scoop her up later, she'll crawl back up me and start the process all over again.
My question is, does she not trust me or is she just the most ADD glider in the world?

that sounds normal to me. my gliders have a hard time staying still during playtime. They rarely let me pet them then. I just enjoy watching them be all hyper. Cuddle time and petting time is more likely to happen when they are sleepy.

Both of mine are extremely hyper like this during play time. Rue does not want to be touched while he's exploring. Liv will come and "check up" on me every few minutes. I can only count once that she sat on my lap for about 30 seconds and let me pet her.

I turn the lights on when I want to get some snuggles for a minute, because mine freeze if I turn the lights on. But in general, I cannot snuggle them at night, not even my little Luna.
I don't think that's her not being bonded; I think that's just her wanting to play. :]

Yep,...totally normal glider behavior.
They totally remind me of a 2 yr. old at the play park.... try slowing a toddler down long enough to get kisses in when all they want to do is get to the fun toys with all the other kids.
When mine jump on me during playtime I'll bring them up to my face and smooch, smooch, smooch as fast as I can with them squirming the whole time! I can just hear 'em.... OK MOM, THAT'S ENOUGH, LET ME GO SO I CAN SEE WHAT COOL THING AERWEN JUST FOUND!!!! And the second I release them they're off and running.
I just chuckle and wait til they make the mistake of coming withing lip shot again.
