"This is George. George was a good little monkey and always very curious."
If I had a dollar - nope, just a penny- for every time I read those words to Micah, I would be one high-rolling stay at home mom! Micah loves, loves, loves Curious George and he made it clear about a day after his third birthday that "when I turn four I want to have a Curious George cake and play Curious George games." A year later, and the boy didn't budge in his loyalty to George.
This past Saturday Micah invited four friends over to celebrate his fourth birthday. And, if you ask me, it was a curiously good time!
Ta-dah! The final clue pointed the kids to the garage where a pinata was waiting, full of treats ready for the taking.
George's look-alike was stubborn and it took several rounds of hits and swings to crack this curious monkey open. The girls squealed. The boys whooped and hollered. And everyone dove when the candy spilled out!
Is there anything sweeter and cuter than watching little people hug? It's not always gentle and usually ends up turning into a tumble on the floor, but oh-so-cute.
