Babysitting for friends gives my kids access to all sorts of cool toys!

Plus, since Mikko never wants to play pretend with me, I get the fun of trying out new games, like Moira's doll and stuffed animal hospital. Yes, there was an epidemic. Good thing we had Davis the nurse to help.

P.S. Happy St. Patrick's Day. Mikko wants to celebrate by getting a piƱata. Of course.

I still haven't figured out how I'm going to keep up my blog reading once Google Reader is kaput. But, for now, I still have links! Enjoy while you can.
