Gone for Good

Mr. Monks that is. Connie's light brown monkey lovey (woobie, blankie, sleep aid, comfort object, etc.) is missing. We went to the Art Fair tonight with the kids and when we got home, Monkers was nowhere to be found! I know for a fact that Connie had him when we started to walk toward the car, so he's probably all alone on the streets of Clayton right now wondering why he's not snuggling and cuddling with Connie tonight at home in a nice, warm bed:( I guess Connie will have to get reacquainted with "Blue Bunny Elephant" (the elephant version of Mookie's Blue Bunny) that he had back during his surgery and early recovery. We had to replace the elephant with the monkey because Connie kept chewing and gagging on the trunk of the elephant back when he had the NG tube and it was causing him to throw up every time we put him to bed. Now that he's without the NG, it should be safe to resume chewing on the trunk if that's what he wants to do. I just hope the kid will sleep tonight without his "bestest friend."

They had face painting at the fair and Mookie's dream came true when the lady made her into a real life "Bunny Girl." Oh, and she's told us that she isn't Mookie anymore. Her new name,which gets longer each day,is Bunny Rabbit Ruby Girl. She's even told this to her preschool teacher! As if Mary Kathleen isn't long enough to write at the top of her papers!
