A Slight Curious George Addiction

Drew has always loved Curious George! I got him his first one at Kohl's when he was about 18 months old. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but he found it before I had a chance to hide it, and it was love at first sight. He became a fixture in Drew's crib, and Drew wanted to sleep with George every night.
I found another one exactly like it at the thrift store, and I decided to take it home and wash it and keep it as a spare. Well, Drew didn't want it to be a spare. He wanted two Georges! He started sleeping with both of them every night.
My parents got Drew a mini George in striped pajamas for his second birthday, and Drew liked him, but not quite as much as he loved the twin Georges.
Lately, Drew has gotten into George again. He carries the three Georges around the house. The other day, I found him reading to them! They have gone on a few errands with us (monkeys aren't allowed in stores - they have to stay in the van). The Georges are currently sitting on our couch watching Drew play with his train. He took a little train break a few minutes ago to go pat each George on the head. This past Wednesday night at church, Drew got to use his accumulated points from his church children's program to purchase something from the little program store. He came home with another George! He was absolutely thrilled to have found a fireman George! He told us that he saw it as soon as he went into the store, and he ran right over to it to make sure that he was able to buy it before anyone else did.

A month or so ago, Drew and I were shopping at the thrift store, and we found a Curious George crib sheet that fits on the mattress in Drew's Thomas bed. He loves these sheets!

I'm afraid to think of how many Georges we might end up with before this phase is over!
