The Perfect 1st Birthday Gift

The Perfect 1st Birthday Gift
Carly Jacobs

I had such a lovely response when I introduced you all to Travel Monkey that I thought it might be nice to let you all meet Choking Hazard. This is the sock elephant that I made for my little faux nephew William. Mama Smaggle very kindly pointed out thirty seconds before I left the house yesterday that his eyes are buttons and that it probably wasn’t the best present for a one year old. As in William might eat them and die. William’s mum loved him though and promised to replaced his eyes with something a little more baby-friendly. My friends met him at lunch and dubbed him ‘Choking Hazard’ or ‘Chokey’ for short…

He is very cute but all kinds of danger lurk in those eyes… beware of the child asphyxiator!

Love Lady Smaggle

    Cupcake – it shouldn’t be too hard to find in bookstores Borders have it. Thanks! It turns out the Chokey now has a new name. It’s Morris and William loves him!
