Monkey Zone

Dear Kelly,

I just ordered these monkey wall graphics in brown for Sam's room from One Up Designs:

Almost every time Sam has a new obsession, I come up with some brilliant plan to decorate his room. When he was into super heroes, I was going to paint a cartoon-styled city scape all around his room and have different super heroes on top of buildings, flying, saving the day etc. When he couldn't get enough of Star Wars, I planned on making his room look like the inside of a space ship. Now it's all monkeys, all the time. On our last trip to Joanns, he saw all those huge papier mache letters and wanted to spell out 'poop' and 'pee' with them. After telling him absolutely not to that, I said that we could do his name. And then he suggested 'Monkey Zone'. Which is going to cost a wee bit more than 'Sam'. I'll have to keep an eye out for the letters to go on sale.


P.S. Picture is from One Up Designs Etsy shop.

These monkeys are great! They remind me of the Barrel full of Monkeys from Blik. I just went to their site and I can't seem to find them anymore -- I guess they stopped making them. You can see them here. We actually bought some for work and this reminds me that I need to hang them. The process involves a ladder in a stairwell, so I've been dragging my feet.

Meanwhile, while poking around the Blik site, I found a graphic that screams Shayne! (Except it's not pink -- but it is pretty sweet.)

Oh, and if you do decide to go for a "poop" theme in Sam's room, you could get these. Wow.

My 10 year old, EJ & Sam hit it off right away. Perhaps because of their love of the word "poop." EJ has now stepped up & he often proclaims "diarrhea" for absolutely no good reason. What is it with little boys & bodily functions?!
