I have two big girl helpers. Sometimes they are actual help, (like chucking a diaper so I don't have to get up off the couch) other times they just repeat "calm down" a million times in the hopes the baby will just get it... and be quiet... so someone can continue watching Yo Gabba Gabba.
Also, on a totally random and unrelated note: I will be making these in the near future. My kids enjoy the I Spy books- but seriously, those suckers are hard! So we need something a bit more age-appropriate. (for both girls and parents) Perhaps I will use this as the filler that I'm also making in the near future. (I bought neon food coloring for the occasion)
