Monkey girl and Bro Bro monkey have similar stuffed animals that were given to them as babies. Like most children, they adore the animals and love to cuddle up with them at night. We decided it was time to give Draggy and Tiger a 'bath'. I had heard a tip to place stuffed animals inside a pillowcase to help protect them when going through the washer so that's what we did. Monkey girl was completely distraught that Draggy needed a bath and was almost in tears as we explained that it was as routine as her taking a bath. Dadda monkey and I were downstairs doing something when the washer's cycle ended, but Monkey girl was apparently standing by to rescue her precious animal. She removed him from the washer, got a towel to help dry him off, and then dressed him in a cute new outfit. She brought him down to us and declared she was never, ever going to let him go through that again. I guess that means next time we'll have to do it while she's at school or sleeping, but I have to say Draggy and Tiger came out much cleaner and no worse for wear!
I'm a retired flight attendant turned stay at home Mom with a family I'm devoted to. I have a little girl monkey pre-schooler and a little boy monkey toddler. I like experiencing new things and am constantly trying to improve not only my life, but the daily grind of my family. I may not always succeed or lack the energy to do more, but I'll always strive for better the next day. We love watching movies and traveling. Adventure is the spice of life and my life needs some kick!
