Monkey and Bug both have cute Monkey hats. Monkey's happens to be one of those sock monkey hats with the long braids coming down from the side/ears. They're cute, especially on a kid. I'm not one who has enough self-confidence to be able to pull it off.
They other day, Monkey and I were sitting down and he asks me where was my monkey hat. (After all, everyone must have a monkey hat.) I told him I didn't have a monkey hat only he and Bug did. This would be the part where is able to get this surprised/shocked look on his face along with a gasp of disbelief. Of course he wanted to know why and I told him that I just didn't have one and that not everyone has monkey hats.
This is his reply:
"Mommy, Daddy and me and Sunshine are going to go to the dore and get you a monkey hat. I will wap it up and hide it behind dis chair. You will close yo'r eyes. I will put the present on yo'r yap. I will tell you to open it. You will open it and you will be so surprised and you will say, 'Oh my doodness, a monkey hat! I wuv it!" And den you will put it on and you will have dese long thingies on the side like I do and you will pull your hat way down and it will keep yo'r ears nice and warm."
Now all that the story needs is a store that is still stocking hats.
