My Real Life

This Guy

There’s just something about Baby Monkey.

I’ve never met anyone as completely comfortable with himself as he.

I’ve also never met anyone who can entertain themselves as fully and for as long as he can.

One day, you walk into the kitchen and he’s doing this:

SONY DSC(Why he’s wearing his jacket, I don’t know…he and Monkey in the Middle never take their jackets off when they come home from places.)

Scissors, tape, pens, paper…creating something that will wind up being taped to a wall somewhere in our home.

The next day, you walk into the living room and he’s doing this:


Confiscating items from our the house to create a reflective light tunnel.


Because he can.

He doesn’t necessarily enjoy being the center of attention, but when he knows it’s inevitable, he makes the best of it.

Like wearing his brothers suit to his choral concert, even though it was a bit too big, because he wanted to look “extra fancy.”


Yep…there’s just something about this guy, and maybe it’s the fact that he keeps the real him hidden in public and only shares himself with us.  Like we’re all in on this little secret of his utter and complete awesomeness.

I don’t know, but I can tell you that if there are any guarantees of kids on the nice list, this guy is at the top.


  1. so cute.
    My son seems to have two personalities too.. he is so talkative at home, running around and giggly.. but when he’s out he’s a shy quite mouse.

    • All the better for those of us who get to see our little guys real selves! 🙂
