According to Stacey from Fresh Stitches (who got it from Facebook), today is National Teddy Bear Day. So in celebration (and because I’m sifting through 26 years of stuff) here are my two teddy bears. (Upon further Googling, it’s either today, September 9th or November 10th. I’m declaring that it’s today!)
I’m not sure who gave me Teddy, but I’ve had him since I was born. He used to have a bib that said “It’s a girl!” and he plays Brahm’s Lullaby. He was with me for almost all of my hospital stays this year and while I felt a little silly, he was a great source of comfort.
And Puppy was my other favorite teddy bear (dog?). As you can tell by their names, I was a very original child. These are the only two bears I’ll be keeping. I have some stuffed Fraggles that someone gave me a while ago that I may keep as well. Still undecided since there’s no Mokey Fraggle plushie for sale. Travesty really.
