Marta the Hood

Marta is a voracious wearer of clothing. On a normal day she may wear four or five outfits at different times, although we usually only put on two of them (regular clothes and pajamas). Anyway, she often finds her way into our wardrobes as well. One day she managed to put on my GW sweatshirt.

Curious George

Mom (Mimi) recently sent Marta the Curious George DVD. I have always really liked Curious George, and I have independently bought Marta Curious George books and even a stuffed Curious George monkey.

Watching the film, I got to thinking that Marta is sort of like Curious George and I am sort of like The Man in the Yellow Hat and that the books are a metaphor for parent-child relationships. I know this isn't that deep, but how much time have you spent thinking about Curious George?

Anyway, I am starting to think of Marta as my own little monkey that I must chase and stop from doing crazy things. And even when she gets a little too wild, I always forgive her. Just like The Man in the Yellow Hat and Curious George.
