Lately Sophie and I have had Monkey on the brain. Whenever the computer is on, Sophie asks to check up on him. She's planning sleeping arrangements (the doll cradle or bunk beds?), wardrobe (will he fit in the American Girl clothes?), and of course activities (she thinks he will like a lot of the really fun places she likes—you think?).
And so what do you think we saw on our trip to the toy store yesterday?
That's right. A REALLY BIG ONE. "Take a picture for Crafty MacDrafty," Sophie instructed.
And then on the way out . . .
. . . a little bitty one! Popping out of a box.
And so she asked me for the zillionth time "WHEN IS HE COMING???" Seriously, this is right up there with Christmas in terms of anticipation. In the meantime, we know Monkey is having a great trip, and we're loving reading about his adventures.
