You need a vacation...

Do you love it or hate it? An open letter to your child’s latest obsession.
- Inspired by Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop

Dear Gerry Giraffe,

I know that you and Rachel are BFFs and go everywhere together but don't you think that maybe it's time for a short vacation, perhaps a day trip?

Can you swim? Yes? That's perfect because I really think that you would just love the tropical breezes of WaShang MiSheen. I hear that WaShang is quite lovely this time of year. It offers an array of exciting activities and you would meet folks from across the globe. And when you're done getting your groove on you can relax and enjoy warm breezes and tranquility on the island of dryHER.

I strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. In fact, I urge you to consider it. Everyone needs a vacation Gerry. And as much as we all love you, I think we need you to take some time away for yourself. And, if not for yourself than for the rest of us. I didn't want to be the one to have to tell you this but Gerry...you stink.

Love you lots!

P.S. I heard that Star Blanket and Baby need a vacation too. I'll be in contact with them as well. I bet that if you all go together you will qualify for the group rate.


  1. Giggling here. I know a few of our friends that seriously need a trip to that destination!

  2. Very clever. Fun post and the postscript is the icing on the cake.

  3. So cute! I will have to plan this trip for my son's much loved Frog

  4. Good luck. I've been trying to send my Kiddo's blankie, Hanna tiger, and Snowy leopard away for about 6 years. Love the P.S.

    Cheers. VB

  5. Ha ha! Love it! We used to have a Curious George who needed a vacay to WaShang MiSheen!

  6. Love the story. It certainly is hard to have them give those things up even if it is for a "vacation". I enjoyed your post, reading some of your other posts and my visit to your blog! -Laverne from Kindred Adventures visiting via MamaKats
