More Monkeys

So I did buy a second monkey in hopes that it would make my life easier. But not so fast! Klara has figured out that there are now two monkeys and demands that I provide both at any given time. I’m very happy I didn’t buy 3.

  3. The whole idea is that she wasn’t supposed to know about the extra monkey so that if the first one got lost you could search and “find” it for her.

      That’s hard to pull off. Freshly store-bought toys have not gone through the deep individualization process at the hands and mouths of kids, and even an innocent onlooker, nevermind the kid in question, could easily tell the difference between the two.

      Clarissa, you need to employ the services of a professional toy forger for this ploy.

        Haven’t you ever heard of the Toy Fairy? Every once in a while, when a child loses a toy she decides to fix it up so that it’s good as new! before giving it back to the child.

        The other toys are taken up into fairy toyland where they can play with each other and be happy!

        • No, I haven’t because I grew up in a place where you were lucky to have one toy. Nobody could dream of replacements.

          This is a great idea but for later. Right now she’s too young to understand it.

  5. Oh no! Sorry my plan failed. Not the first time I’ve been outwitted by a toddler.
