Haiku Friday: Monkey Socks (not sock monkeys)

tell me what sound does

a monkey make ooo ahh ahh

ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh

show me monkey toes

little socks with monkeys on

the toes and the back

can't find larger pair

too adorable to not have

oh what will I do

Last spring I found an adorable pair of cute little monkey slipper socks at Target. Then it got warm, and we forgot about them. I found them again this fall, and M has already perfected her monkey noise, and she stares at her feet and makes monkey noises every time she wears them. But they are small, and won't fit her through the winter. We've been searching for other similar slippers with no luck. They must have been fleeting seasonal items. I'm hoping the upcoming holiday season means that I can find a replacement for when these no longer fit, but I'm getting discouraged.

As for animal noises, we've added monkey, cow, I think a duck, sometimes sheep, and a growl/roar for bears/lions/tigers that comes out like her saying "Owwww". I want to capture as much of this as I can, so I don't forget how cute it is. I think I may need it when she's a teenager.

Aw, cute haiku. I hope you find another pair because they do sound adorable. If you do, could you please send me a pair? ;)

I like those toe socks...the ones that are like gloves for your feet.
