02. Rock-a-Bye Baby (Responsibility)

12-year-old Todd Crayton is not feeling all warm and fuzzy about having a baby sister. As far as he's concerned, the new baby is just a lot of extra work. His parents spend all their time and energy on Kelly, and insist he be more understanding, even when she mangles his personal belongings. Wishing Kelly would just disappear, Todd dozes off and Nilus the Sandman appears. Before they can set off on their dream adventure, however, Kelly also wanders into the dream and promptly falls out of a window into danger on a huge construction site below. Nilus and Todd begin a frantic search for the newborn, only to fall into the hands of giant babies who treat Nilus and Todd like they were babies. This helps Todd come to understand what Kelly's life must be like; also as Kelly innocently wanders into more and more danger, he discovers the benefits that come with caring and being a responsible person. 05/08DE PI 30 min.
