Poesy vs. The Giant Bear
It was well before Christmas, when one day we stopped at Walgreens to pick up stockings. Poesy spotted this insanely huge bear and it was love at first sight. We visited Walgreens a few other times after their initial meeting, and each time we were in the store you could over-hear her talking to the bear: "Giant Bear, one day I'm going to save all my dollars and I'll come back for you and you can live with me forever. It's a promise. I love you so much."
Let's fast forward to January 10th. We had invited her friends over the day before for her karaoke party, but decided to save her gift from us until her real birthday. It went something like this:
As you can imagine, there was quite a bit of screaming and jumping and "thank you, thank you, thank you" happening. Being parents can be hard or weird or whatever sometimes, but geez... being able to bring someone so much joy from a great, big teddy bear, well that's just the greatest.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, she named him Giant Bear. ;)
