A whole new meaning to "I've got a monkey on my back!"

On chilly mornings like today, I like to get a warm fire going downstairs in the family room to take the edge off of the cold and make it more inviting for kids to be able to be down there and play. This morning, after I had explained to the kids the "new and improved" chore system, Sebastian started to work on his chore (or jurisdiction) of the family room. He found a pile of monkeys and decided his little bro would look adorable with one riding on his back. I think he was right! All the kids gushed about how cute Brighton looked with the little monkey hugging his back. Brighton seems to think it's pretty fun too...he's been wearing the monkey now for almost an hour (and none of the chores are done yet, in case you are wondering....ergh.)

A monkey on his back, a brush in his hand to carry around, and some snackage in his mouth; life is good! :)
