Out of the Blue

As I mentioned yesterday, we are babysitting this weekend, playing host to a pair of boys, one six, and the other just shy of four. Luckily we have Hudson the wonder dog to assist with this, as she is great with kids, and can match even the most sugar-fuelled youngsters' energy levels. So with a little trepidation, we are looking forward to the experience... I'll let you know how things go (I'm guessing a couple of you parents out there are already amused by what they know we are in for here).
