When my parents were here last, they bought each of the kids a build-a-bear. Since Noah’s favourite hockey team is the Pittsburgh Penguins, Preston’s bear was outfitted in Penguins gear.
Preston was too young at the time to take an interest in anything that wasn’t filled with milk, but recently he’s been joined at the hip with Mr. Bear.
He walks around hugging the bear (and saying, “hug!”), and he takes him for walks (runs, actually) in the yellow stroller. (Baby strollers aren’t just for girls! They have wheels, therefore they are a boy’s best friend.)
Now, Preston’s bear doesn’t always get the best treatment. He also gets dropped on his head and run over by the stroller that usually carries him and sometimes he gets a little soggy with drool.
And sometimes he gets neglected a little bit because there is a big truck outside, and trucks? They hold the trump card.
