        look how cute you were! was your hair crimped?

        i have a teddy bear named hug me. he wears a blue hoodie that says hug me on it. i stopped sleeping w/ him when i moved in w/ dh, but he's still in my closet. he has a smushed nose. i bring him to school every once in awhile as a prop for writing.

            I still have a puppy stuffed animal that I got when I was little. I got it because all I ever wanted (since I was born) was a dog and I couldn't have one growing up. When I graduated college, FI bought me a dog, so I don't really need the stuffed one anymore...but it is still in my closet

              I still have a bunch of my stuff, but it is packed up. I was never slept with any animals but I did have a blankie that my Nana made me. I also still have my original Care Bear sheets from my first big-girl bed, circa 1983-ish.

              My big thing was this pink teddy bear planter that a friend brought me in the hospital when I was born. It was from my mom's BFF's brother. I was born on his birthday and it was also his 1 year sober date. Sept. 15 was a big day for all of us!

              The plant is still alive! I've always called it my "grandfather plant". You hear stories about how a clock stops and someone dies, well I feel that way about this plant.

              At our engagement party, I was telling this story, showing off my ceramic teddy bear. Well, the next morning, it just fell off the shelf. I have NO CLUE how it happened. I cried for like an hour! I immediately re-planted the plant in a different pot and tried to glue the other one back together,but it's kinda lopsided now.

                I thought I was the only one!!! I sleep with my "blankie" everynight. My granny crocheted it and I was brought home from the hospital in it. Even though it is full of holes, I can't part from it. My FI asks me every night if I want to set it aside for our future children, but I say I will buy them a new one. I am being selfish, haha....I like that pic of your crimped hair...so cute

                  I don't sleep with binky, but he was given to me by my fiancee when I moved away to university. It was his tiger from childhood and I cherish him

                    I don't sleep with stuff animals anymore, but I do collect them (still). LOL, I used to walk around with a doll's head as a child. LOL, the doll's head was missing an eye and some hair. I would bring it everywhere with me. While, I was sleeping, my sisters would take it from me, wash it in the washing machine, and put it back before I woke up. LOL, I know I sound like Wednesday from the Adams Family.

                      I still have and occasionally cuddle with "freddy bear", he will be 22 this winter. My grandmother gave my dad (also named fred) a teddy bear as a joke for his birthday when I was 6 because she had thrown away his teddy when he left it in the rain as a kid.

                      I took it to bed with me that night, and haven't given him up since. He is missing both legs, one ear and has no mouth anymore, but I love him.
