Now that your little monkeys are off to school....
Though there were certainly times that I looked at my two little hooligans and wished that school was year-round, the Summer did end up going by very quickly and the welcomed routine of car pools and making lunches is upon me again.
My "Little Monkey Pendant" was born because I couldn't figure out how to draw a hooligan and I felt inspired to create a little something that would capture the personalities of my own little monkeys.
I like the idea of having something a little more on the whimsical side, rather than just the standard name and/or birthstone pendants that you see. It's amazing how many people - especially other mothers - who understand the balance of love and chaos that the charms represent (I even had a mother ask if I could devil horns on hers!).
I hand drew each one of the monkeys - there are two options for girls, one for a boy, and even a baby - so, they are true Pretty Peacock originals.
Now that the days are far more quiet and I can actually go through the entire day (or at least a 6.5 hour span) where I'm not running to the bathroom for some quiet time, I find myself looking down at my Little Monkey charms and though I am VERY grateful that the Fall is upon us again, I am far more grateful to have my own little monkeys in my life.
Happy Autumn, All!
