Sock Monkey Update

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  When I last mentioned Sock Monkey, it was merely to let you know I hadn't seen him yet this year.  Now that Mom has started packing things away, however ...

"Ooooh, look who I found!"
"Uhh ..... hello."

Yep.  Sock Monkey!  And do you know ... I have decided to be friends!  I mean, come on!  I'm FIVE now.  I can be friends with Sock Monkey!

Mom asked us to pose together and I showed her I put all that "I'd love to rip Sock Monkey apart" stuff behind me!

"Seriously.  You can leave the room and everything, Mom.  We're FRIENDS!"
"Ummm ..."
"Oh, sure!  I might grab my best friend and sister Cam by the neck and throw her around a bit,
but that's just playing!!!"
"Help me ..."

I don't think I convinced Mom.  Or Sock Monkey.  I REALLY tried to look innocent and snuggly and stuff, too, but Mom wouldn't turn her back on us.  Or get much further than 6 feet away.

Next year, Sock Monkey.  NEXT YEAR, you'll be mine!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  2. I bet Sock Monkey would taste so yummy, Maggie!

  3. BOL...What a good girl you are Maggie!

  4. You are far more mature at 5 then either of us are now and we are older!

  5. Mom says even Lightning at 7 1/2 would find it hard to resist Sock Monkey:)

    Happy New Year!

  6. Sock Monkey would've been a Lexi snack in 1.2 seconds. But she's only 7 months old so since you're 5, he's safe for at least 10 seconds, right?

  7. Here is the thing about moms: they always know. Dads can be fooled. Moms, never. But we appreciate the try.

  8. You showed a lot of restraint Maggie! Who knows maybe by next year all thoughts of tearing the sock monkey up will have disappeared.

  9. You are exhibiting great restraint Maggie. Walter wouldn't be able to contain himself with a Sock Monkey snuggling up to him. That toy would be fluff in no time. Happy New Year to all of you.

  10. Ha ha! You are an amazing girl, Maggie!!!!!

  11. Oh My Pug!!! He is the cutest sock monkey ever!!!!

  12. Why do Mommas not TRUST us?? It's so insulting!
