And the 5 year-old, the baby... He really has been the baby up until about a month ago. It's not that we treated him like a baby, but he was just always the youngest and relied on others to entertain him. Now, he's got two younger housemates and he ends up comforting a sad little girl or finding fun games to play with the two cousins, or speaking with that sing-song voice grown-ups use when they're speaking to a 2 year-old. It's been miraculous to watch him change so swiftly over the last month. I've never treated him like he's my baby, (well at least not since he started school!) so it's nice to see him growing into a big boy version of himself on a more full-time basis.
Wait a minute. That wasn't what I meant by big-boy help!
