Potty trained monkey takes over the world

Remember when I became a grandmother
…to these lovely children?

Well, when my seven year old, Terran saw them, he decided that he wanted to be a dad too.
So he made himself an egg-baby named Colin.

This is Colin within minutes of his birth…

I gently suggested to Terran that he might be better finding a baby that was more shatter-resistant.

So he did.

This is Chilean Monkey.
Yes, that’s his name: Chilean Monkey.
I know, right. Never ending supply of creativity in this house.

He’s pretty cute.

I thought he was very cute when I found him in Terran’s bed like this…

…and even cuter when Chilean Monkey was caught doing this…

…because nothing says adorable like a monkey taking a shit.

So yes, I’m all kinds of proud because Terran is potty training Chilean Monkey.

I find Terran sitting and watching Toddlers in Tiaras educational television with Chilean Monkey.
I see him spoon feeding the chimp yogurt.
At one point there was even discussion of Chilean Monkey’s future, something along the lines of, “Mom, when Chilean Monkey grows up, he’s going to be really famous.”
I replied, “That’s nice.”

And it is.

Until I walk by Terran’s bedroom, and see him throwing his child from the top bunk of his bed.

“What are you doing? I could call Social Services on you for doing that.”

“It’s ok. He’s learning how to repel. It’ll come in handy when he’s a grown up.”

However, I find this pretty harmless and again, pretty fucken adorable, so I move on… plus Grey’s Anatomy was coming on.

Then when I come back upstairs to put the boy to bed, I find¬†Chilean Monkey¬†doing this…

“Now what are you teaching him?”

“How to use automatic weapons. Doesn’t he look cool!”

…Okey dokey…

Maybe I’ll give him another egg.
An egg baby would look pretty stupid holding an automatic weapon.

    OMG! What kind of grandma ARE you? Why don't you buy your grandmonkey a potty chair? Why didn't you get a rope and explain the concept of repelling. And you can easily see your grandmonkey needs a smaller gun. If nothing else, I hope you at least made some banana bread. Congrats!

    Bahaha! Seeing little Chilli rapelling sans rope was a riot. Poor little guy. Well, at least he will know how to jump out of a plane and fight in the jungle. Just sayin'.

    Poor Colin…As one who's worked with monkeys (Macaques), and watched way too many episodes of Fatal Attraction, I hope he remains a “friendly” monkey. I say “friendly” because I think monkeys are evil. Those poop heads tried to attack me on numerous occasions. Oh…and watch out for poo throwing.

    Seriously, the next time I am in the 'Peg, I want to take you out for coffee.

    You crack me right the hell up.

    My daughter likes to make parachutes for her stuffed animals and throw them off the bed.

    Someone's going to have to have the talk with Chilean Monkey. I mean doesn't he know he has to actually have his hairy ass OVER the hole in the toilet or he's going to shit and it's going to shoot right back up his arse?

    You're welcome.

    I have a feeling Chilean monkey will be found with a limb missing pretty soon….after all, your child should learn how to operate on his child, so he can save it's life after the bunk bed incident ends in tragedy.

    My first “outloud hyena laugh of the day” award goes to you. OK, it's not a real award but one of these days I'll get off my retired bootay and create one – holy crap is this funny! Maybe a hard-boiled egg – think of all the fun you could have with that.

    Chilean Monkey and your monkey boy would fit quite nicely with our family. Nothing like a shit taking, repelling monkey Rambo. I am sure he would get along wuite well with our monkey, Rabies.

    Chilean Monkey is going to grow up to be one fine, automatic-weapon-shooting-repelling monkey.

    I have complete faith in him and in Terran.

    TOO funny! I hope he was smarter than I was as a child and didn't ACTUALLY feed the monkey yogurt. I found an old doll of mine that had applesauce caked in her mouth. Where I thought that applesauce was gonna go after I shoved it in there, I have no idea.

    I always heard that monkeys THROW their poop at people. So Chilean Monkey would be pretty OCD using the potty. And the other monkeys would laugh at him.

    maybe a hard-boiled egg?

    The bunk diving is important training for a monkey to know how to swing through the trees, once he is released back into the wild.

    Hey. I don't think you should ignore the fact that he is spending a lot of quality time with that monkey. Very good parenting.

    Knowing how to use semi automatic weapons will come in handy for the zombie invasion. Your son has good parenting skills. Too bad about Colin, I suppose all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put Colin together again?
