Last month, Moonie received a special gift from a friend: balloons! One red and one yellow, or according to Moonie, 1/3 of a rainbow. He ecstatically starting pulling his balloons around wherever he went.
Of course, as many of us have discovered, balloons slowly leak air over time, wrinkling up and decreasing in size until we have no choice to toss them.
Moonie, on the other hand, still thinks his balloons are beautiful, even after he lost their ribbons. He is dragging the saggy little pair everywhere, just as excited about them today as the first time he laid eyes on them.
I don’t want to be the one to burst his bubble (heh), so I guess we’ll just see how little and wrinkly these things can get.
