I think it was about 6 months or more ago that we discovered Eric could change Alex's diapers. It got to the point of Alex wanting only Eric to change her diapers and would cry if we did it. Now he only did it maybe 5 times so it's not like we got lazy and just had him start doing it! It was like most things with a 4 year old...it got old fast and he stopped doing it. But it was really interesting to see how well he could do it.
The Barbies are now put away with the intent of someday soon throwing them away. (Out of sight, out of mind??) I gotta say its been nice not hearing my kids say "boobies" a million times a day or hearing them fight over Ken and clothes and shoes and brushes. HONESTLY, what is with Barbie actually having boobs?? What kid needs to see that?? And I gotta say being 9 months prego...I got a little jealous seeing her perfect body! Who really looks like that?? :) Anyway..enough rant about Barbie... This is what the kids thought was really fun to do with the Barbies and it made me a little excited that they are going to be such good helpers when this baby arrives. No, they won't actually be changing diapers but its nice to know that they are big enough to help me out! Hopefully they never try to hold the baby by the head though!! ;)
