Meet Marshmallow

I want Gabriella to learn how to garden, so we went to the local flower shop to buy a plant for the fire escape. A safe, unambitious starting point.

The nice man who owns the shop helped me identify good student plants while Gabriella wandered around petting the animals. Yes, the animals. Sock monkeys. Teddy bears. Stone bunnies.

Mama? MAMA?! MUMS?! See him? See monkey? I LOVE MONKEYS. He's SOOOO cute. Good boy. I have him?

The nice man is now looking at me like a concerned zoo keeper and I'll be damned if I'm going home with a sock monkey. A stone bunny, on the other hand, would look awfully cute on our fire escape ...
