On the other hand Patrick follows her around the house like a puppy and if Maggie has something he wants it. And I'm amazed because she either a) let's him have whatever she's playing with happily or b) starts to cry and say "Me! Me! Me!" but she doesn't start swinging the way she most definitely would if her big sister did the exact same thing.
She's gentle with him in a way I seriously did not believe she was capable of... she very much acts like a very little kid the rest of the time but when she's interacting with Patrick she's all big sister.
Although it's a little bit ruined for me because It's supposed to be a spartan helmet... but Paul pointed out that while it could look like a helmet it also looks a lot like Maximus, the horse from Rapunzel... Maybe he's just watched Rapunzel too many times with the girls...

Maggie discovered the one thing that she could do that would get her rice and bean box banished from the house. I would have swept rice and beans every day (and I was) without complaint but... when she decided raw rice and beans were her new favorite food it was time for the box to move outside (and become a rice and bean and sand box). Well... cleaning at night time just got a whole lot easier.
