Don't just live in the world

Most Loved

Last year at Blissdom Sleep Country Canada was giving out gifts to attendees. I pick a snuggly teddy bear and Joe took the other gift, a neck pillow.

I had no idea that teddy bear would become our daughter’s nightly sleeping companion. She named it Amy Teddy (yeah, I know) and cuddles it every night. Even if she come into our bed to sleep Amy Teddy comes too.

And now I will always carry this regret that we didn’t get two. Because something is going to happen to this bear, and she’s going to be so very, very upset.

I had a piggy that I slept with every night and my mother still remembers the time he got lost. I was devastated, I swore up and down I would never be able to sleep without him. A friend offered a replacement, a pig that had been identical before I had taken my scissors to my own piggy. It was no good.

Until finally Mom found my piggy where I had stashed him before I forgot.

Now I hear about parents who have two of a most-loved toy and switch them out occasionally so they both have that super-cuddly used feeling about them. Those parents are very smart. Amy Teddy is very dirty and increasingly well loved.


I fear the day that Amy teddy gets left behind somewhere.
