As a mom, don't you just love it when your child asks, "mom will you make a monkey for my friends birthday?" My reply should have been "when is her birthday?" But no, I just said "sure" only to find out her birthday was the very next day! UGH....when will I learn? I stayed up late and worked on it, as soon as I got home from work the next day, I worked on it until it was done, thinking my son would take it to her house. When I handed it to him, he said, "I think I'll wait and give it to her this weekend." AAAAAHHHHHH.....no wonder some animals eat their young!
