Sleep Buddies

Since Bud was born, we have used the term "Sleep Buddies" to refer to the various stuffed animals that he sleeps with.

There is always Pooh Bear. Always. No Matter What.

And we have Rexie, Rudolph, Nemo, Ted and George. In the event we have trouble at bedtime, (if you are a parent, you know what I am talking about) We reserve the right to take these last 5 sleep buddies away as a form of punishment. We don't do it often, but it has been known to happen.

But never Pooh. Pooh Bear is always in bed with him. We are not that evil.

So Bud has been earning each of his Sleep Buddies back due to a particularly rough bedtime last week. Pooh Bear is still the lone Sleep Buddy.

Last night, while tucking him in and listening to his prayers, I sat on something puffy under the comforter.
That would be Nemo.
Bud had used his little chair to get Nemo off the shelf and hide him under the comforter. When I asked if there was anything else in the bed he needed to show me, he brought out a small ceramic squirrel...
And a plastic letter A.

Apparently Sleep Buddies don't need to be stuffed.

Haha, what a cute story.

Clover's sleep buddy is still me so I guess that's true, they don't have to be stuffed ;)

Good thing you didn't sit on that squirrel--that could have hurt.
