I noticed this before he came home.
It seems to be growing.
What is this infatuation with monkeys on clothing? Tar.get seems to be going overboard. One recent weekend we went in search of puddle boots... all we found in his size were these...
Around the corner was this....
Not only do I not "get" the obsession... I am simply not comfortable dressing my child in clothes with a cartoon 50's looking monkey prominently displayed. I can't nor would I chastise others for dressing their kids in them... I mean... what's the difference between "You silly goose." and "You chunky monkey". ..but .. honestly.. I don't trust myself.
There is history.. one in which I've been privileged enough to ignore until know... deep enough I don't fully understand and likely never will.
I do not trust my reaction to any commentary offered while The Boy wears such items. I don't trust that such comments would always been cutesy and well meaning.
Plus, I don't trust the frightening looking monkey, if truth be told. That thing scares the crap out of me!!
