It's been a while, a long while, since I've posted. Caring for a newborn is ridiculous amounts of work!! However, since we discovered this little item below, life has been a bit more sane. This, is The Precious.
Not to be confused with this character and his Precious.
There are a few similarities between Gollum's Precious and Monica's Precious.
1. Monica seeks her Precious with serious voracity.
2. She, like Gollum, is at peace when her Precious is in her possession.
3. Monica's Precious will also be thrown into the fires of Mount Doom some day between now and the end of toddler-dom. (We're going for sooner rather than later.)
(Alright, I'll be honest. I don't think Monica really considers that pacifier her Precious. I think Kevin and I consider it our Precious. I guess we're really the ones going on a "journey" to Mount Doom. She's just along for the ride.)
