It's kind of like grand parenting. You spoil the child for a little while, have fun, then get to give it back when you are tired of it.
For the past 10 days or so we have been watching a small bunny, temporarily named "Jill, for their cousin Megan. She doesn't know it but this is her special surprise on Christmas. So SHHHHHHHHHHHH... its a secret (I'm 99% sure she doesn't check this blog)
The boys have thoroughly enjoyed having a pet around the house but understand that we can't get one ourselves because we are in the apartment.I'll have to come up with another excuse when we move into a house.
