I asked Mommy to take my picture with my monster creation. When she showed it to me, I asked her to send it to you. I love you and miss you! All my love and hugs.
To the moon and back – bigger than the sky!
I was so excited to receive this sweet e-mail from my Big Little Man. He LOVES monsters. And, I was very, very happy he wanted to share his beautiful little monster creation with his Noni... from miles and miles away. Melts my heart.
Then, for just a moment, I was a bit wistful about the dark b-yue (that's blue), not light b-yue Monster Hat that had been lost before he even got his mouth sewn on at Christmas. Oh, the struggles to create a hat that passed Big Little Man's approval! He is very sure of the things he yikes (likes) and he doesn't yike. Nothing wishy-washy about this Little Man. Nothing.
To tell the truth, the Monster Hat really didn't pass the test either. He did not like the green trim; it's all about the b-yue. And, while his mom and I did like the green, Roo was much more willing to sport it around than Little Man. I'm just sayin'.
Still, since we had worked so hard... his Momma diligently stitched the eyes and tooth and horns on as quickly as I could get them off the needles... it was a sad day when the Monster couldn't be found. We had all given up on it as lost.
Same day as the Monster Mail: Pop Pop comes in the house with a "guess what I found when I took the hay bales out of the back of my truck" shout and a wet, muddy, hay-smelling, hay-covered Monster Hat!
I'll have to admit, in that moment, I was glad Little Man had chosen an acrylic yarn! LOL! Now, the Monster Hat is clean and dry and will finally get his mouth this weekend then find its way to my monster lover (or his little brother).
Maybe things aren't always as lost as we think... who knows when they might pop up again!
