That is why we consider them family time activities- we work on them together in a group adn they are up teh rest of the time. As with any toys with small parts. Really though, kids can choke on everything from toilet paper to grapes- it doesn't make the product inherently unsafe.
lol, yes.. she was a big big girl. My first was 8.8, then 10.12 now 12.8...Dh got a vasectomy after her birth.. we are just not going to go for 14lbs.
hey, we've done the peanut butter thing http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...utter004x2.jpg ok, so i didn't exactly HAND it to them. LOL Another thing I found they like is paper dolls... my husband likes making the ''templates'' and i help the girls decorate the clothes and they each have a little box started for the paper doll and various outfits. just one outfit so far. As a side note, i'd do this with boys to- it is a lot of fun and trying to get the 'tabs'...

ooohhh... my kids are counters, they'd love that.
hope i can join in... we were tv free since our oldest was born. My kids are 4.5, 2.5, and 8 months. With the birth of our youngest and her hospitilization at 7 weeks we did start watching some videos on the computer. Never daily, more like every few weeks- but when we did turn it on it would be on for a few hours so dh could work or I could tend to the baby. I hate it, and feel pretty guilty about it. but dh had to keep working and I was in a bit over my head. I...
that is adorable, lol.
