A couple of weeks ago, Doug and I decided that we would take Emma to Build-A-Bear so she could make herself an animal for her birthday (which btw, is today, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this).
We took her to the store twice. The first time was just a dry run to see what she liked. She hemmed and hawed forever, but was leaning towards an animal that I hoped she would not choose.
The second time we went she picked her animal. And she did choose the one I didn’t want her to get. I wasn’t surprised, though. It’s very typical of Emma to go with her first
She had a blast stuffing her animal and giving it a heart. I think it was a fun experience for her.
We didn’t buy clothes for it at the time, figuring we’d buy some for her and give them to her on her birthday.
So, last night, I carefully dressed her animal in my carefully handpicked Limited Too attire.
This morning, this is what Emma had waiting for her:
I am proud to introduce Emma’s newest best friend, Crocodile the T-Rex.
And she’s (because there was no way I was dressing her as a boy) wearing name brand clothes and flip flops.
Of all the bears, bunnies, kitties, dogs, frogs and turtles she had her choice of, she chose the T-Rex.
And I dressed it in Limited Too.
