yes it is a weird as it sounds.

a little introduction to my madness...
my daughter has a liking for Elliot and Buttons elephants (http://www.sayitwithbears.co.uk/viewcategory/64). she now has 6 of them in varying sizes, all called variations of "prettybaby"... alll apart from two, Dru (the small one) and PFHBRRR (elephant noise). it's a veritable herd. she sleeps with them all at night she always has to have at least one of them with her as a linus blanket of sorts when we are out and about. the only place they don't go is preschool.
prettybaby
moreprettybaby
tinyprettybaby
swimmingprettybaby (a boy version of PFHBRRR)
PFHBRRR and
Dru.

I have failed two driving tests, the time limit on my theory test certificate has run out and we're out of cash, so we recently bought one of these trailers second hand:


and as sophie has to wear a helmet in it (she's not in the pic as we're in the carpark behind our house, very quiet, very safe), so does the fricking elephant.

Enter me, some styrofoam and a craft knife...

Dru; his hat is held on with thin decorative elastic. sophie says his hat makes him look like bob the builder.




PFHBRRR: her hat is painted with acrylic paint and hel on with ribbon, onto one side of which is sewn a flower button.




thankyou and good  night.

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

That's some very helmety helmets! Of course do elephants need helmets too. And elephants should always be living in herds. How wise of you to support all the crystal clear thinking in your daughter. Smiley
