Sleepy Pete

The sock monkey that I received from Danger Kitty Design's giveaway contest is now named "Sleepy Pete."

This honors a time in my life when I wanted my own name to be Pete. I believe it was in first grade. It may or may not have stemmed from a desire to be a boy...I do remember feeling like frilly, girly things were weird and I always noticed that boys were treated differently than girls. Or it could be that I was just infatuated with the sound of the name. All I know for sure is that sometime during the few weeks of this unfortunate phase we got our yearbooks, and mine definitely belonged to Pete.
