The Trusty Companion…
Moo has her favourite teddy, Ive written about it before. Its a rabbit and it was a gift when she was born. Its the teddy that goes everywhere, it watches her in the bath, goes to play school with her, goes to the shops, goes to bed with her, goes to the park. It also is the rabbit that gets swung around by its ear or thrown in the air and thrown up against the wall, and then the rabbit, is also there to wipe away the tears when she has fallen over or is unwell.
This rabbit has seen better days and yesterday I noticed its nose, its silky nose, is no longer, its half there and fraying. I am devastated that this has happened. You may laugh at this, but this is my baby girls companion, her best friend, the friend that does everything with her. I am now wondering how long its going to last.
After discovering the nose, I decided to take a closer look and on further inspection, Ive noticed a few other little flaws, my heart started beating ever so slightly faster. The ears are starting to unpick and the legs too. I am going to have to practise on my sewing skills!
I feel quite sad that this has happened, she has had this rabbit since she was days old, and to watch her sniff her ear or sniff her nose when she is upset, melts my heart, she really does love this rabbit and has an attachment to it, there will be a day when she wont want it any more, but I am hoping the rabbit has plenty more life in her yet as I am not ready to say goodbye to it just yet!
