Our 3rd kiddo, The Southern Gentleman, was a bit confused about how to use this newfangled contraption. He gave the noisemaker the once over.
And then he decided that it must work like this...
So Mommy stepped in for a little noisemaker lesson. "You put THIS end in your mouth, Son."
Well, maybe that is how the average Joe does it, but he is, after all, the son of two unconventional parents and he has his own way of doing things. I have to admit it was much more entertaining and as a bonus, MUCH quieter.
