    Still playing with my – or rather my son’s – food over here.     With the following picture, I wanted to try to get a picture of a Goldfish sushi roll. But one problem: I don’t actually know how to roll a maki roll and didn’t have any sushi rice made to make the […]

    This is The Kid playing with his baby sister’s bottles. I chuckled to myself thinking, Awwww….the little girl has her very own bartender. Naturally, I couldn’t snap just one picture*, so here are more images of him playing bartender/milk-tender/bottle-tender/whatever (I never did come up with a good name):     This picture was featured in […]
