I still have my baby blanket that I don't let anybody touch
That's a negative.
I do, however, appreciate snazzy stuffed animals, and buy them on occasion. I'm known to occasionally sleep with a teddy bear...until one of my nieces decides to adopt it.
My "blankie" is Raggedy Anne. She is homemade (how else to describe it) When I was a little girl one Christmas my mom and dad had NO money to spend on Christmas.My mom felt really bad about it,especially because they also didn't have the money to buy a Chritsmas tree. I had ran away to a neighbor's house(I was 1 1/2) ...Santa was going to lose me because we had no Christmas tree( and our neighbor did). So,she made me Raggedy Anne and Raggedy Andy.Those two dolls stood as tall as my dad (5'0).I have slept with "Annie" ever since.
I gave Raggedy Andy away the very day I got him...my parents were having a small "dinner" party that night.My mom's guests had their little girl with them...she was crying.Santa "forgot" her (honestly her parents were in the same boat my parents were in;not enough cash to buy her anything). Now,we are at my mom's favorite part of the story. :
I had gone to my mom crying over "Stephanie".I just couldn't understand why Santa was mean to Stephanie but he brought me 2 things! She(my mom) said I asked her if she would be mad if I shared something. My mom said she thought I was going to give her something out of my toybox....She also said she had never been prouder of me than when I gave Stephanie my Raggedy Andy. And she says I told her to stop talking about Santa;he wasn't my friend anymore if he was going to be mean. LOL
(Sorry for talking your ear off.I just love my Annie and I think she has a cute story to go with her.)
Not really, but the other day I was visiting my parents, and a spider crawled right next to me on the couch. I jumped up and yelled for my daddy to come kill it. lol
i have a bear ..he stayes in my shelf on my room.
