Everyone Loves Teddy Bears
When my son was two years old, Santa brought him a teddy bear, and he immediately called him “Pooh”. “Pooh” became an important member of our family. Jeff would not go to sleep at night without “Pooh” tucked safely under the blankets, which sometimes caused a mad search for the bear looking outside, under the bed, or in the toy box.
“Pooh” went on vacation with us. We made sure that he was always in the car before leaving the motel or restaurant (Yes, “Pooh” had lunch with us).
When Jeff became a father for the first time, he called one day to find out if I still had “Pooh”. Of course I did, and “Pooh” became a part of another generation. Now, he has a few miles on him. He’s lost an eye and has had to be patched many times, but he is still one of my grandchildren’s most beloved toys.
What do you have stored away that was very important to your children? It might be a blanket, a toy, or a onesie Is it still in the box or bag in the basement? Get your creative juices going and see what you can do.
