Later on, they showed me that each of their monsters have rips that needed to be fixed. They're a couple of my older monsters, the ones I made in the early days before I had a sewing machine and before I had learned a lot about sewing. One thing I've found about my early monsters is when they've been well loved by the children they belong to, they tend to need a few repairs. (see picture at right for a referance of what "well-loved" means! Thankfully, this was after I fixed it!)
So after they showed me the rips (since they knew I was the one who made them) I told the boys I would fix them and asked them..."Should I bring them to the Monster Doctor?"...to which they wholeheartedly agreed and put them in my basket so I could take them home.
I sewed their arms back on and then, on a whim today before I was on my way over to Amy's house to hang out, I decided to give each monster a heart...a fun little memento of their trip to the "Monster Doctor".
These little troopers are ready to go back home!
Caleb, happy to have his monster back!...(although I think that particular one belongs to his brother). He was very excited about the new hearts each monster had. He kept saying "Mommy, look! A heart! Look Mommy! He has a heart!"
