Silly Monkey Story #1

Karen started this cool new Tuesday meme for all to celebrate the kids in our lives.

So here's my first Silly Monkey Story.

We'll go back to 2006/2007 to set the scene. I was pregnant with Izzie and Caity was excited about being a big sister, but for some reason, she thought (and no one we know of told her this) that there was a baby elephant in my tummy, not a baby sister.

So March 5, 2007 arrives and I deliver Izzie. Caity is standing outside the nursery windows with grandpa and she's got this odd look on her face.

Her first reaction to seeing her sister:

"That is NOT a baby ellphant mama, I want my ellphant."

LOL! I wonder how she got that into her head. I bet you'll enjoy reminding her of this story for years to come. Thanks for sharing it with us!!

That was so funny. Don't you love how the little ones think. Sometimes I truly wonder what they are thinking.
