Before Bear was born, I was doing a little shopping and decided to buy her a build-a-bear. I thought it would be so sweet for my first born child to cuddle up with their very own bear, and since we were doing bears in the nursery, what better way to decorate.
I remember fondly stuffing that bear with a kissed up heart and took great pride in my purchase. After she was born, the bear was put on display next to the special bear she received while sick with Infantile Spasms.
Lion entered the world and it only seemed fitting to get him one too. We decided on a sweet dog so that we could tell them apart. Neither one of the kids really do anything with their build-a-bears but I know they are there.
When Banana came, it just seemed we never got around to purchasing his. That is until a few Sunday’s ago on a family shopping trip to celebrate a birthday.
Banana got his bear! And I can finally feel like I have kept the tradition.
