Build-A-Bear Excursion

A nice quiet Saturday evening was the perfect time to cross one more thing off my
This was a fun chore, one every Mommy should put on her list.
A trip to Build-A-Bear with our matching monkeys.
We had to begin by "bathing" the monkeys with jets of air and soft brushes. Beka had to explain to me how to step on the peddle below the "bathtub" to turn the air on.
Beka is learning to use my camera.

She's getting a little better.

I think she gets it. She also didn't get a dorky look on my face this time.
My monkey looks like she is enjoying her spa day.

Too Many Choices!
Doesn't that sound like the title of a Berenstain Bear book?
After seeing their selection of pajamas, we scrapped that idea.
I can't believe they didn't have footie sleepers or flannel nighties!
This Mommy might have to start sewing again.
We finally made our final decision and dressed our monkeys.
Instead of twins, Beka decided they would be best friends for awhile.
I think that is because she didn't love the same outfit I loved.
But, we'll share.
She learned the art of sharing when she realized that her Mommy buys toys for Beka
AND toys for Mommy.
If I ever bought something for myself, I would always hear her concerned little voice,
"We share, Mommy, wight? We share."

I can't believe I forgot my monkey's name!
Actually, yes I can. I can't even remember my OWN children's names all the time.

  1. You are an inspirational mother! Lost your phone number because I melted my old phone. Now needing to program things into my new one. Remembering you in prayer - and have friends who have added you to the list. Believing for a healing! These are the words that I speak over you.
