This is Ba Bear. Denice has had this teddy bear since she was two. Her first teddy bear got lost on the second day at day care. She had no choice but to take Ba Bear as a replacement. Daddy had bought Ba Bear at the thrift store, even before the first teddy bear got lost.
You can see how much she loves Ba Bear. Ba Bear has been stitched together twice before when seams came apart.
Look at poor Ba Bear's nose. It has been chewed till there's not much left of the nose. The stuffing is gone from the nose and some from the body as well. When she feels "geram" she will bite the nose!
On Friday night, when we were out shopping, she told Daddy she was ready to replace Ba Bear. I told Daddy, there were more teddy bears at home, and there were two that a friend had given the kids that still needed to be put together.
This is the girl teddy bear. A bride teddy bear. First thing Saturday morning, Denice began pestering me to put the teddy bear together. She just couldn't wait to see the bear in the bridal dress!
This is the boy teddy bear. A bear groom.
"I don't like it. Teddy bears cannot get married."
"Why not Duncan?"
"Only boys and girls can get married!"
Okay. That's that then.
You should have seen Denice clap her hands at the sight of this pretty bear. "Oooohh, she is so pretty!"
What about Duncan? He started fooling around with the boy bear clothes.
After putting the two teddy bears together, I then went on to try to fix Ba Bear. Imagine how excited Denice was at the the thought of Ba Bear all stitched back together and more stuffing added!
After Ba Bear was stitched back together and a nose job done to it, Ba Bear was thrown into the washing machine for a long over due wash and then thrown into the dryer.
Denice could not wait for Ba Bear to come out of the washer when she took her afternoon nap. She even cried. I guess that the bride bear was nothing compared to her beloved Ba Bear!
Ta da! Ba Bear all fixed, and cleaned! Guess who got cast aside, no matter how pretty? Yes, the bride bear!
Ba Bear is still the beloved teddy bear.
