Monkey Business

So we are now in Atlanta...after 10 hours in the car, we made it!  I thought I had planned for everything, brought everything we could possibly need.  What I didn't plan for was Ethan getting car sick and throwing up all over all of his monkeys.  For those of you who don't know what the word Monkey means in our house ...monkey means blanket. Specifically, if you are Anna Claire it is a pink blanket with silk on one side and soft material on the other and if you are Ethan your monkey is the same except it's blue.  Don't try and switch out the monkey with another color or another size because folks it won't work.  We were 4 hours from our destination and he had gotten sick and no more monkeys left.  He was not happy!  He does this really funny sound with his mouth - it's kinda a cross between a purring kitten and a dying seal when he wants his monkey and it is very cute the first 5 minutes but after another 55 minutes of it at a very high pitched squealing followed by loud fits of screaming, I had had enough.  So I did what any other Mama would do.  I was on a mission to find another one because I was NOT gonna make this kid go through two days of medical testing without the one thing that comforts him.  Soooo, after 6 stops, 2 Walmarts, Carters Outlet, Osh Gosh BGosh Outlet, Target and finally the Mecca of all stores....Babies R Us...we found a Monkey....




Within 2 minutes of monkey being put around his sweet little head, he was fast asleep in the car and we were on our way.....and all is good in Ethan land....
