Writing with Naked Elephants

A couple of weeks ago, Clementine brought me my coffee cup at the door as I was leaving for the cafe to write, as is the routine every morning. I was walking that day, and a block or two from home, I noticed my cup was rattling. Taking off the lid to peer inside, I saw that I had a hitchhiker :-)




This morning, I actually reached the cafe and went up to the counter before I noticed a little companion had made its way into my cup. 




He has clothes on this time, which is kind of a relief. Less to explain, you know? I mean, it's one thing to take an elephant with you to the cafe. Quite another to take a naked elephant. What will people say?

Thank you, sweet Clementine.

I love the elephant. How can you not be inspired with him around--naked or clothed.

What a pal, to send along a companion to be Mama's muse.

Darling.

How sweet! I love it when my kids tuck things in my purse or work bag to be found later in the day. Or should I say, I USUALLY love it, there have been a couple of semi-gross gifts.

Oh my goodness. That is just the cutest thing :)

Close call this time. Elephant needs a snorkel just in case.

Seriously, your sweet child gives me cute attacks. Glad Mr. Elephant was clothed this time.

Are you sure Clementine doesn't have a drop or two of fairy blood? She's beyond words adorable!

This morning (Thursday) I actually witnessed the putting in of the elephant to the cup for the first time! It happened very fast, I almost missed it :-) And I was able to give thank you hugs and kisses, XO

Clementine is too cute! Sending Mommy off with well wishes to help her work. Adorable and she's so intuitive.

Omigosh, TOO adorable! I don't know what I want more: a Clementine Pie of my own, or an elephant (clothed or naked).
