Meet Mack's 'Cousin'

I have needed to write this little story down forever so I don't forget it. However, I am aware that this is a story that probably his mom is the only one who thinks it is cute. So please don't feel pressured to leave a comment saying this story is .... cute? ... precious ..? ha ha

Mack has a cousin. Human? No. He is a weird looking puffy stuffed monster that someone gave me at my baby shower. I had forgotten that I even had this monster until 4 or 5 months after Mack was born.
Well needless to say Mack instantly fell in love with cousin and he loves to have him with him everywhere. great. Well a tragedy happened in my young Mack's life. (or maybe was just the result of a careless mother who loses everything) Cousin went missing.

A few weeks later we headed out to Old Navy for some little necessities. I was perusing the little kid section and was surprised to here Mack whining about something. When I looked down I realized he had spotted a NEW cousin and was whining for it. Wow I felt like homeward bound had just happened and somehow cousin had come back to us. (don't pretend like you all didn't watch that movie) What was I supposed to do? It was the most adorable thing ever, so like a sucker of a mom I bought him a new puffy cousin. He LOVES that thing and was so happy to carry it throughout Old Navy.

A couple weeks later we found missing cousin under a seat in Cody's truck. So now we have cousin, and we have 2nd cousin? lol.

Mack doesn't mind.

**side note** I have no idea how the puffy monster came to be called cousin.


  1. Haha...2nd cousin! That is funny! And it is cute how he recognized it and wanted it! It's great to have a back up for when one gets lost.

  2. Mack doesnt not like grass. He does not. Cousin kinda scares me. He looks creepy. but 2 is always better than 1. Presley has a love bug stuff animal that she loves. Absolutely loves. She also said she wanted to see her boyfriend this week. What do you think?

  3. I agree.. That thing is weird looking. Mack's REAL cousins are way cuter! (Well.... one of them is anyway)
