Six Word Saturday..." Caden's Key"

My six words for today are: 

Follow the adventures of "Caden's Key"...

You may be wondering what "Caden's Key" is..."Key" is a tiny, beige, soft blanket, with the upper portion of a monkey's body sewn in the middle of it.  Some people refer to them as "lovies".

Our two-year-old grandson, Caden, has had Key since birth.  He formed an attachment with Key early in life.  Caden especially wants Key with him when he gets tired or sleepy.  When Caden began talking, he couldn't say monkey, so he referred to his friend as, "Key".

It's a good thing that Caden's mother had the foresight to go out and purchase a duplicate "Key" in the early stages of Caden's life--when it became apparent that there was going to be a lasting bond there.  Caden and Key are inseperable, and the two go everywhere together.  As a result, Caden and Key have been on a lot of adventures together--and Key has gotten left behind a time or two!

Key's latest adventure was in our local Alco store.  When Key came up missing, the search was on in Alco!  Christina found Key hiding in the M&M display!  Now how do you suppose he got there???

Caden and Key were at our house for a visit last night--along with Madison and her parents.  It was late when all left to go home.  My husband and I went to bed shortly after everyone left.  This morning when I walked into our pool room, guess what I found on the floor?  You guessed it!  "Key" spent the night with MiMi--again.

Below are a few photos of Caden and Key.  One of them is a picture of Key hiding in the M&M display at Alco!  Aren't camera phones the greatest?  There's no excuse to miss those "Kodak Moments"!

Speaking of Kodak moments, Caden took that first picuture of Key--all by himself!  Not bad for a two-year-old, huh?  I guess he wanted a picture of his best friend...





Thanks to Caden's mom, Christina, for the use of her Facebook photos.  They're all "keepers"!

That's so cute. My daughter used to work at a fabric store. She made a small little blanket for him out of it. It was given to him as an infant and now over a year later, he still holds onto it each and every day.

I love that! They started to become really popular after my first was born, maybe I will get one for my second, who knows!!

That's a cute story about "Key". My two youngest granddaughters still sleep with their blankets and they are way too old for that...but they love them.

Caden is a cutie!

What a cute story and what a special bond between Caden and Key. It reminds me of Charlie Brown's friend, Linus and his trusty blue blanket. LOL

Love these things, no matter what they are called...everyone designs them with their own name, but they are the best thing ever!
