These are two of the other kids my mom used to babysit. Brooklyn and Kyle. Brooklyn's favourite toy to play with while she was over was one of my stuffed animals, a Beanie Buddy named Bows. Which I promptly renamed as Buttons.
Her other favourite thing was Kyle. Kyle did not share the sentiment.
Then we'd spend recess looking for chocolate gold coins and getting questioned by the older kids as to why we thought there would be an Irish Leprechaun running around the Canadian Prairies. To which my reply was, maybe he's visiting some relatives here.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
