So my littlest boy doesn't have a birthday until September. And he will be (oh dear lord) five on that day. He's too little to be five this year. He's still my baby!
Anywho, my issues with my baby not being a baby anymore aside, the other day he was looking over my shoulder at my emails or blog surfing or something, and he saw a picture of a child with a very cute sock monkey. You know, the ones that are all the rage around the crafty www world at the moment (or so it seems). He was very taken by this toy, and I have to admit they are terribly cute.
So here are my dilemmas:
Is five too old for a cuddly toy?
Will he think he is too big and too boy for a cuddly toy?
Should I get one now while they are all the rage and easy to find?
Am I getting waaay to far ahead of myself, given that his birthday is SEPTEMBER?
Would I be able to restrain myself and not give it to him as soon as it arrived in the mail?!
Of course, one has had to research this sock monkey thing - here are my options.
I could make my own. Now this does sound quite fun (although this version while looking like Curious George, is a tad boring compared to others I've seen) but I really would have to purchase now to ensure I had it made in time, given my track record at actually getting things done.
Or, I could buy one ready made, from madeit or etsy.
As you can see, quite pressing and heavy matters on my mind this morning. Your advice would be appreciated!
