No, I am not talking about the city in California... I am talking about a hideous little creature that has plagued our life for the last 10 or so years. Seriously, Cucamonga is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. You have to click on the thumbnail to get a decent idea of his grotesqueness.

You see, hubby's sister thought it would be so funny to start this tradition. she hides a ugly creature somewhere in our house, it takes us months to find it, then we have to hide it in her house. It has been fun, I had last sent Cucamonga to my SIL's work place by UPS. I thought it was pretty great. Well, somehow, he ended up back at our house. I found him the other day cleaning out some cupboards.

Ok - so here is the kicker. I posted a while ago about B loving her little "friends." She goes through phases. Well, she has taken to this beast like it was the cutest thing in the world. She talks to it, sings to it, pushes it on the swing. Has she even taken time to LOOK at it? I mean really -- can't she see how terribly frightening it is?

I don't know how I am going to get Cucamonga away from her to hide it for my SIL. Once B adds "friends" to her collection, there is no way to get them away from her. You should see her little family she has created... Maybe that will have to be another picture, another day.

So here she is, ready for bed (ponytail hair and all)... loving her new little friend. Along with a couple other members of her gang. (the pink blankie bear in the middle is her old standby)

O.K. I am laughing so hard at this story. I love that B has taken to this critter. It sounds like something my girls would have done when they were her age. Good luck with ridding yourself of Cucamonga.
