Oh Koralee...
BEAR has this toy!
minus the pom pom
on the hat, which
mysteriously left!
i think i'm unique!
my co-workers tell
me they don't know
anyone else in their
60's who has spiked
hair...i tell them
just look @ Rod Stewart!

I just saw your little sock monkey while I visiting with Tea Cups and Bunting. My daughter, Jess, adores sock monkey, and I just bought her a sock monkey ornament with her name on it. It's always fun to see that sweet little character, and I love the "flow" quote too. Have a good week.

Sock monkeys make me happy. We bought them for our little guys, but I don't think they liked them nearly as much as I did! Excellent words as well.

wendy said...

love this.
Finally...at age 60....I am more confident with myself as an Individual.
I don't need everyones acceptance to feel good about myself.
It's been a journey.

scarlett clay said...

Great quote, as always... love that little monkey face! my little Knox has a sock monkey and I hang him from the bedroom door and it keeps it from slamming shut. :) Have a great week!

OH THAT WAS TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! I was not expecting a little monkey here, but his LIPS just say, "KISS ME!"

Oh precious friend, you are doing assessments this week? I went in yesterday but there was no school in session. We teachers were given this day to CATCH UP and I entered all my grades. BUT I TOO have at least 6 more RE-assessments for reading that I should do to get a broader view of some kids' reading abilities. Where I will fit these assessments in, I have no idea! Then on Friday is the DAY the report cards go home.

I pray you are well, rejuvenated and ready to tackle the load. LOVE CONQUERS ALL - Anita

Nezzy said...

My students would laugh at my many capers and say, "Oh Mrs. Nezzy, your crazy!!!" I'd softly smile and reply, "I'm not crazy, I'm unique."

That confidence in bein' who you are seems to come with age....or bein' a sock monkey!!! Heeehehehe!
