I loved my last design. LOVED it. It will go down as one of my favorite designs of all time.
But I needed a change and as I pondered my new look, nothing inspired me.
Nothing, that is, until I started singing “10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”; a song that’s becoming a staple in our home to help coax Reagan out of a bad mood. The idea stuck and I made the mistake of mentioning it to the Littles.
From the moment I mentioned the monkey design, they were constantly asking me about it. They wanted to help me. They wanted to see it. They pestered me in the car, on errands, and used it to avoid bed times. “Mama, I can stay up and help you with the monkey design.”
The look on their face when I showed them the first draft was priceless. They started guessing who was who (can you guess which monkey belongs to who? The Hudson monkey is pretty obvious…) and then they gave me their seal of approval.
So without further ado… My 4 Little Monkeys.
