"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” -the Velveteen Rabbit
We haven't had a good #erniethemonkey
post in a while, but he is still hanging in strong as contender for best friend ever, and well on his way to becoming Real😍🐒!! He still goes almost everywhere with us and now doesn't have any stuffing in the neck, and been through his fair share of trips through the wash. .
He is Sam's baby, mommy to a little stuffed hamster, loves going for car ride, by Sam's side when he's sick, and loves being read to.
And now for Valentine's day he got a new friend of his own. A little bright red monkey...yet to be named!
Sam is in a pretty literal stage, so we'll have yet another animal named for what he is to join the ranks of Puppy, Fox, and Hamster. I'm taking all the suggestions!
