Monkey had a substitute.

After school Duhdee learned that Monkey’s teacher left during the day for an appointment and a substitute was called in.  A man. 

Now, Monkey is very attached to his Duhdee but he has very little use for other men.  In fact, he has very little use for anyone who isn’t female and a brunette.  He knows what he likes and he has a way of letting you, and anyone within earshot, know if he doesn’t like you much.

So here we have an unexpected change in routine (teacher leaving) and a strange man added to the mix and you have a recipe for….

An awesome day?  He didn’t actively try to escape from the classroom and the stranger’s presence, he didn’t just tolerate the poor guy’s existance (which is generally the best case scenario in my experience)…he PLAYED with him.  He sat on the floor with this strange man and engaged him.  Color me thouroughly confused. 

This boy really likes to keep us completely off balance, I guess, because I can’t think of any other man he’s done this with other than Duhdee in almost 4 years of life.  What happened?

    He’s growing up mom :). Matty has an aversion to long haired brunettes…luckily his sisters fit that bill too or he would have nothing to do with them either…lol

    I think it is our kids’ jobs to keep us off balance. Just when you think you’ve figured them out, they throw you for a loop.
