A monster has moved into our house. He is purple and on occasion, he has green spots. We found him, while looking for monsters under little man’s bed last week. Once we discovered that he was a friendly monster, we invited him to stay. We asked him what his name was and since he didn’t have one yet, we named him Franklin. Franklin likes his new name.
Franklin keeps all other monsters and “bad” guys, out of our house, because they are all afraid of him. He protects our house while we are gone and while we sleep at night.
At night, Franklin takes turn’s sleeping on the top bunk of little man’s bed and on the floor, next to little lady’s bed. We take turns letting Franklin sleep with one of our stuffed animals. Going to bed with a monster is so much fun. I have to kiss Franklin every night or he cries.
Franklin doesn’t let bad dreams into our house and if they do try to come in, he chases them out the window. We haven’t had any bad dreams since Franklin moved in.
In the mornings, he cuddles with us. Franklin loves to cuddle…and he loves watching Dora. Just great.
Franklin eats with us and he eats a lot. He eats food that we cannot see but he always makes a mess. Franklin wants to eat our food too, so we eat our food really fast so that he can’t get it. Sometimes, I forget that Franklin is sitting in my chair at the table and the little people laugh at me because I am sitting on Franklin’s lap. I kind of like sitting on Franklin’s lap.
Franklin is big. He doesn’t like to brush his hair but he loves to brush his teeth. Franklin loves taking baths because he loves bubbles. We have to tell Franklin to not eat the soap.
Franklin likes to jump on our beds. He also likes to hide from us, so we play hide and seek with him. Franklin loves to look at books with us, but his most favorite is when we make up stories for him.
Franklin loves music, just like us. He also likes to dance. His favorite song to dance to, is Twist and Shout by Little Richard. I danced to that song with Franklin last night and he said I was a good dancer.
I have asked Franklin if he could at least help with the laundry and some of the cleaning but the little people inform me, that Franklin is too busy for that kind of stuff…that he has important stuff to do. Hello?
It is amazing how much longer little people can play in their bedrooms, with their toys, when Franklin is playing with them. With Franklin helping, the toys get picked up so much faster.
Sometimes, Franklin gets a little wild and crazy, so I have to make him sit on the red stool, in time away. It’s a wonder, how a purple monster sitting on a stool, in time away, can get two little people to behave, in such a short time…it’s almost like magic.
We have so much fun with Franklin. Every day, we discover new things about him…like today, I learned that when Franklin is sad, he gets covered in green spots…the spots go away, when he is happy once again, which is usually really fast. I think we will be adopting Franklin.
