After I dropped the ladies off at preschool, I realized that is was April 1.  I got on the internet to see if I could find an idea.  They suggested making a fake person by stuffing pants with newspaper etc then propping a newspaper in front of it to cover for the missing head.  I was running short of time so I made a Paper Paul.  It doesn’t take long to stuff a 3-6 mo. jammie.  I put it in the swing, covered it with a blanket, took the baby to a friend’s house then went to pick up the ladies. They loved it.  The sad part of the story is the fact that they readily believed that I could forget a kid at home.  I count then constantly when we are out and about, and I have yet to forget one.  We used Paper Paul on our nanny and then Grandpa daddy too.
