My Dear Best Friend,

Someday, the night won’t be so scary. I won’t dread the lights being turned off, or of facing it alone. Thank you for seeing me through those first scary nights. Someday, I won’t take you everywhere. If you are forgotten in my world of imagination, just know that you helped me create it. Someday, I’ll stop sharing my food with your sweet stuffed face. But for now, we share every snack and every drink. You taught me how to share.

Someday, I’ll stop dragging you through the mud. But for now, let’s squish some more. Someday, I won’t sneak you into the shower when mommy’s back is turned. You helped me learn that bath time is a lot of fun. Someday, the washing machine won’t be the end of the world. I won’t stand crying as you spin the excess water away. I won’t turn the dryer off a hundred times, trying to get to you sooner. But don’t think I stopped loving you.

Someday, I’ll stop carrying you everywhere I go. But for now, your soft plush gives me the confidence I need in new places. You make mommy and daddy being gone, okay. Someday, I will leave home without you. You gave me the courage to face the world outside my home. Someday, I will explore the world on my own. You were my first adventure partner. I won’t forget the games we played.

Someday, I will be big and strong. But you showed me that it’s okay to be soft on the inside. Someday, I’ll have a family of my own. You were my first practice as I copied mommy and daddy. Someday, my little ones will have a best friend too. I won’t try to stop it. I know how precious your first best friend can be.

I love you, Ted Ted. I always will.

I think Snow White ate Dog Food… and Ted Ted gets a bath

You heard my right, I think my little Snow White ate dog food. Blue eyes was “training” the dogs today. He tells them to sit and then gives them pieces of dog food. It’s super cute and the dogs are really patient with him, but it usually leaves a mess. I thought I got all the pieces up, but I just saw Snow White spit a piece out. Don’t all kids at some point? I know we were worried for a while that Blue Eyes thought he was a dog… and they’ve both gotten their hands on dirt. So I shouldn’t be surprised that Snow White had to try the dog food.

It seems like she shouldn’t be getting so big so fast. Take your eyes off of her for a moment and she’s crawled off somewhere, normally my room where there are big double mirrors. Blue Eyes loves to play in the dirt, so I’m just waiting for the day I see both of them covered in head to toe dirt. What’s funny though is that for someone who likes dirt, Blue Eyes freaks if his hand or feet are dirty. And then we end up with yet another bath. This last week I made him put Ted Ted outside of the shower while he went to play. I heard Snow White crying and went to check on her, only to come back and find Ted Ted in the shower with Blue Eyes. Since Ted Ted was already wet, I let him play. I watched Blue Eyes carefully soap up Ted Ted and then rinse him off. He sat Ted Ted on the ground and sat next to him, giving him a rubber ducky to play with. Yes, Ted Ted has become my little boy’s beloved friend. After the shower was over, he even stopped carefully to try to dry Ted Ted off, and was heartbroken when daddy had to put Ted Ted in the dryer.

Taking care of Ted Ted

Taking care of Ted Ted

I often find Blue Eyes copying mommy taking care of “Sissy” with his friend Ted Ted. That little brown teddy bear is helping him understand how to take care of someone and to help someone who needs it. Some day Ted Ted will stop going places with Blue Eyes, but for now, it’s so sweet to watch him take care of his friend.
