'Pipad' Intervention?

I think we have a serious need for iPad intervention in our house.  During the week, the girls get little to no TV and very little iPhone/iPad use.  The weekends can be a different story.  If Steve and I are trying to get the house picked up, trying to get dinner on the table, we sometimes need a little help.

This past weekend, I had the girls Saturday morning by myself.  Steve was in Vegas.  I had to get them fed, dressed and out the door by 8:30am to get to Abby's dance class by 9.  At one point, Emily looked at me and said 'I want pipad'.  That's her way of saying iPad.

I knew she would keep herself out of harm's way (i.e. climbing and falling off of things) with the iPad.  When I asked her to go sit on the couch and told her that I would bring her the iPad, she did the cutest little dance, with the biggest squeal of excitement.  She was twirling in circles, yelling 'pipad pipad' with a big grin on her face..

Uh oh.  We need a toddler 'pipad' intervention.  Some weening of the device, breaking the dependency.  Wish us luck!
