While (or WHILST since we are in England!) we were in Kentucky, Emma was so excited to explore Build a Bear at the Mall (She has been there several times in her life but does not remember it.) We walked through all the steps, she watched two girls make a dog, and then she spotted the MONKEY. Of course we had to have the cheeky monkey!! She went through the building process, found him a pair of knickers, and named him Brackley (pronounced, by Emma Shea, Bra-ko-ley) Brackley is the village she goes to school in and where we just moved into a house.
Brackley is always with us.
