Meet Blankie and Bunny:
Can you imagine my dismay when The Daddy pointed out to me where they were last night as our firstborn slumbered?
There they were. Jumbled together in a heap behind the reading chair. Amongst the few other stuffed animals we keep. No longer needed. Sadly discarded.
Now AE runs around the house shouting, YAHOO! YEHAW! and I'M A COWGIRL! YIPEE-YI-YAY!
And I'm left wondering. What happened? What happened to my little girl who snuggled and hugged and loved those bedtime friends?
She said she didn't need any animals anymore.
She's a big girl now.
Oh, my. Oh, my.
