The quiet one in our family

I am sorry for the lack of quality in these images.  I wanted to introduce a member of our family, this is Kitty, she belongs to my daughter.  She was plucked from the shelf @ Tuesday Morning in 2002. Kitty is both a blessing & a curse.  A blessing because she is able to calm my daughter, a curse because if she was left behind…well, lets just say  I’d rather face a tornado.  I found Kitty on the washing machine this morning.  She needs a bath because she went camping at Saab Lake/Pond.  Kitty has been on every single camp out since the creation of the lake.  I think she went to the last one just to save S. the time of answering the question posed by the Saab Clan as to where she was.  Its always easier to say she was present, then trying to explain why she would be left behind.  Kitty is 11 years old now.  Someday, when my daughter moves out, I hope that she will leave Kitty behind, to comfort me.Kitty Sophie 2 1 Kitty in Vermont kitty

  1. Amusing. We had a blue teddy called Parker for our first born Henry. It still sits in his bed. It looks a little raggedy. But what Henry never knew was that we did lose Parker on at trip to see friends in Poole, when his stuffing was already past its best before date. Such was our concern that Parker 2 (we had thought ahead just in case) had to be unpicked and defluffed to create the same effect and avoid suspicion. We got away with it.We decided to get Parker 3 as back up only to find Adams had stopped buying it, But we found the manufacturer in China still made them. Despite Henry being beyond caring that much now, waiting in our loft are Parker 3 and 4 just in case…..

    1. Funny how we come to love the things that bring our children comfort. Tuesday morning in U.S. never have more then one. My daughter Sophie took better care of kitty, then we did of her. The Velveteen Rabbit on personal levels. 🙂 -amy

  2. Oh so delicious! My boys had a loved stuffed animal too – the oldest had a bear and the youngest had a Peter rabbit bunny. They are both full of “stitches” because they had wayyyy to many baths. I will keep them forever!

    1. As I hope Sophie will leave Kitty with me when she leaves. I love that cat. Dirty, full of love, I learned if you dried Kitty she had a perm & never dried her again. All of my Sophie memories are tired up in raising her along side Kitty. 🙂

    1. My mother saved my little brother’s dinosaur. She kept it & took it out to show us all the times she had to give it ‘stitches’ when it tore. I love stories of over-loved stuffed animals. I hope that you have a few pictures of your daughter’s bear. You could make it into a gift for her–frame & try to find its match! Thank you for commenting.
