look at my "new" blender and blocks!
we have a pretty small apartment so mary's first christmas we decided that we would always put some of mary's toys in the basement so that our house isn't too cluttered... then we can pull out old toys and she'll think they're new! :) so, today i rotated her toys. most of them she hasn't played with in almost a year... and she was SO occupied by them! it was awesome! i highly suggest it to all parents.
