Shameless Bragging and a Finished Object!

When I first saw this picture I assumed husband drew it at Boy Monkey's request. I have had to draw many a toy car replica, anyway turns out Boy Monkey did it all by himself, while husband and I were sleeping in. Pretty damn good isn't it?
Notice anything odd about this picture? No, not that the beds aren't made.
See? No rungs on the bunk.
We had to remove the second (and final) rung three days ago, because my littlest Monkey who turned 21mths this week could still climb up, sans bottom rung. The three Monkeys all share a bedroom which can be quite a challenge at times, littlest Monkey getting into Boy Monkey's bed somewhat hinders the process of Boy Monkey getting to sleep.

Anyway, here's some craft. A finished object, yay! It is made from my homespun wool. Look at the buttons! See that lovely clean white wool? That is the same dirty brown stuff that was on my niddy noddy in this post.

Luckily Big Boy Monkey is an excellent climber too or there could be issues about him getting into his own bed. His drawing is scarily good. As is your cardie. Lovely buttons.

love the jumper, and I think it should be commenter because a person is a commentator.

Say, that is a great drawing! Looks like he has a good notion of perspective and such. How does he get up to the top bunk without a rung? That's probably a stupid question ... young men have their ways.

Holy cow (or should I say sheep?), you're a talented knitter. The very idea of knitting makes me want to shriek and run in circles, but I'm glad someone does it and enjoys it.

I think we are going to have to call Tracey the Grammar Nazi.

Love the buttons! And the jumper. We all know that you were *sleeping in*, sad little euphemism that, while the monkey was drawing his architectural grade picture.... sleeping in my dirty shoe.

Great drawing.

And I love those buttons, and the rest of your work.

There is no such thing as a dirty shoe habit!

Melinda you are too funny! I suppose it will do no good if I tell you we really were -sleeping- in.

I didn't think twice about Boy's ability to get into his bed without the rungs, he never used them even when they were present.

However he tells me he did use it to get -down-, part of some elaborate swinging manoeuvre apparently.

Doesn't Melinda have a dirty little mind? Hmmm?

Anyway, onto what I was going to say...

Yay! You are back!

That's a great picture your boy drew. I can't even make a stick figure look like a stick figure.

And I LOVE that cardy! The wool looks spectacular!

As for what is wrong, such as entire sentences in brackets. Eh! Who cares, it's YOUR blog, do what you bloody well please!

How long do you think it is going to take littlest monkey to figure out how to get up with no rungs??????
Cute jumper!!

I'm just going by personal experience here.... Euphemism is popular at our house. Rob will ask MIL to keep the kids so we can "clean". And that man can turn absolutely ANYTHING into a sex euphemism: Wanna "wash the car?" "Make the Bed?" "vacuum".... like references to cleaning put me in the mood! Silly man. Apparently sleeping is more important to some of you than loving.

I can just imagine that everyone who knows Melinda turn up to her house expecting the cleanest place they have ever seen.

All they get though, is a mess, and Melinda and Rob sitting on the lounge with goofy looks on their faces.

I bet the vacuum cleaner even has cobwebs on it.

Yes, Yes Aunty, but I don't have cobwebs where it counts! :-D Aren't you supposed to be scared of spiders? Does this mean you will never visit me if I have cobwebs on my vacuum?

Sitting there 'looking like that cat that ate the canary'...
Oh wrong thing to say.

I love that wonderful piece of artwork! My son used to draw out things like that.
And that cardy is to die for, & I love the colour!!!
