Welcome to this week's a 2 z: Take 2
and the letter I.
Okay, so I've been holding out on you guys. Quite awhile back we had a new addition to our family and we've just kept it under wraps, but now it's time to introduce you to my baby...
Toby is a six year old white face capuchin monkey. He's my perpetual 2 year old who ran straight into my heart and anchored himself there with all five appendages. Let me tell ya, that tail of his is force to be reckoned with!
I'm amazed at how similar he is to my five children. Toby is my "other child" and is very much considered part of the family. Even more than our beloved dogs and cats--because he lives in the house with us and he changed our lives so much when he came. When Jim and the kids come in from work or school they have to go straight back to say hi to Toby because he can hear them and will screech until they go back. He may not be in our main living area of the house, but he's very tuned in to all the goings on and participates from a distance.
But when he's bad, he's very bad.
The nice thing?
He lives in his cage and comes out when we take him out. Always on a leash, always fully supervised.
Toby changed our lives. In a good way. He drastically changed my life since I'm his primary care-giver and trainer. It's been a good change and has added a whole lotta monkey business to my life. And that's a good thing, even if it makes me maid-to-a-monkey. =)
So now you've met the whole family. I just couldn't wait for the letter M so I chose I to Introduce him. LoL.
