Earlier I mentioned how Sofie has a full time job playing mommy to her favorite toy, Little Soft Phoenix.
Yes, he's the same one who disappeared in the Denver airport. We told Sofie he was trying to find an envelope to mail himself back home to her, when really we were waiting for a new version to arrive from a toystore online. Little Phoenix was on backorder. After three weeks or so, he finally showed up and Sofie was thrilled beyond belief to see him again.
Today, after much begging and pleading and days and days of campaigning, we went to the toy store to see if we could find him a crib. Sofie genuinely thought we were going to go to Babys R Us and buy him a great big, kid-sized crib like the one she used to have, and that we would put it upstairs in Mom and Dad's room since it wouldn't fit in her room.
Uh, no. But we found this cute little doll-sized playpen that does the trick nicely, and brought it home.
Here he is, enjoying his new domain. He's the small black cat under the blanket, with his head on the Nemo pillow. The orange cat (formerly of the committee) is HIS favorite toy.
Nice life these animals lead, isn't it?
