Keeping up with 2 little girls, writing assignments, music gigs, the house, laundry, ETC, backwards, wearing ass kicking boots and a smile, without spilling my beer. Ok, ok, so I spill my beer, but my floors have never been more germ-free since I started putting a little alcohol on them. Who needs ammonia...

Capture the Everyday: What’s your child’s favorite toy?
Today, I’m linking up with Melissa at Adventuroo for Capture the Everyday.
Today’s assignment: What’s your child’s favorite toy?
My oldest’s favorite toy is Sam, the bear. Sam was purchased about 6 weeks before Natalie was born. Sam got me through my very awful 2nd (and not last) day of labor. I abused the hell out of that bear, and I’m glad he survived, because he’s slept with Natalie just about every night of her life, since she was about 10 months old (after I got over the fear of him suffocating her). My oldest is nearly 6 1/2 and she still can’t go a night without him. Many times, Natalie won’t leave the city of Grand Rapids without Sam. If Sam is forgotten somewhere, God help us. We’re basically expected to walk through fire to find him again. Who’s running this house again?
My youngest also has a favorite bear, Buddy. My mother-in-law received him after donating to Habitat for Humanity. Sedona found him one day at Nana’s house and quickly attached to him… as you can see, he is loved. Buddy has been put through the wash — a couple times by accident, but a few times, in a garment bag. Buddy used to be taken everywhere Sedona went, but after almost losing him several times (he is much smaller than Sam) I managed to convince her Buddy is an “at-home” toy. I’ve tried replacing Buddy with newer, better stuffed animals, but my plan backfired and all potential replacements have taken over her bed. However, Buddy remains king.
Confession time: I actually slept with my own little bear until I was married. Yup. I’m a freakshow. Since the hubs is a human furnace, I can’t snuggle with him for long, so I have upgraded to several pillows since giving up my own bear. I think the hubs would appreciate me going back to the bear instead of the 3 pillows I now require.
Do your kids have a favorite toy? Do you?
Capture the Everyday is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, Melissa issues a simple challenge to capture something that’s a part of your daily life. You can post just a picture or add some words to go along with it. You’ll have a week to get it done and then I’ll issue another. It’s a quick, easy way to start capturing those little parts of life we sometimes take for granted.
