I forgot to mention, as I was skittering around tying baby toys and bows to a cake made of diapers, my oldest was fluttering nearby asking perpetual questions.
"What are you doing, Mommy? What is that? Why are you tying that? Can I have that cup? How many diapers are on there? Why is it called a cake? You can't eat it! Why are you putting bows on there? Can I wear the bows? Is this for Aunt Shell's baby? Where is she? Can I help? Can I help? Mommy, can I help now? Can I make one?"
I would have let her help, I truly would have. But I had 15 minutes to get things together and get out the door. So instead, I handed her a pile of diapers, some ribbon, and some various extra items and let her have a go at making her own.
With a minimal amount of help, she assembled this,
