Chad was just a toddler when he fell in love with Curious George so I got a 20″ stuffed Curious George for Addie when she was just a bit over 1-1/2 years old. I mostly did it to bring back memories for Chad but Addie fell in love with George and has barely let him out of her sight since getting him. He’s been washed, mended . . and she still rarely leaves home without him.
There’s George up in the big mesquite tree watching Addie swing.
Addie was in a little preschool at their last location and she wasn’t able to bring George with her to school so she would buckle him in the car, he would ride to school with them, and he’d be there waiting, all buckled in, when Nicole picked her up.
When Addie and I Started to leave Tuesday morning to go to my knitting group, to have lunch and to the grocery store, I said “Don’t forget George!” She looked at him and said “He wants to stay home and rest today.” I was shocked but . . she’s growing up and George may find himself staying at home and “resting” more as she grows up.
He has been a good friend to her for over three years and it’s been so cute but I’m happy to see that she won’t be devastated when she starts preschool and he cannot go with her.
