Day 67 from Burbank - Hedgehog Love



Once Upon a time in a far off land called Burbank there lived a little boy with a lot of stuffed animals. For 3 years these animals lived on the bed during the day and on the floor by the side of the bed at night. They were all very cute but the little boy didn't really play with them or have a favorite. He was more interested in his matchbox cars and rocket ships.
Then one day his mommy was putting all the stuffed animals on the bed and saw the little hedgehog puppet. She put it on and in a soft voice said "Hello." The little boy turned, put his matchbox cars down and came over to meet the hedgehog. "Hello" he said.



And from that moment on Hedgehog became his best friend.


He showed Hedgehog his cars, rocket ships and books.


They played puzzles, built things and watched shows together for 3 hours straight. Once in a while the little boy's mommy is grumpy but Hedgehog is always sweet and nice. She gets to be the little boy's friend and doesn't tell him what to do. Sometimes even mommy is surprised at what Hedgehog says. In fact mommy has always been a little icked out by puppets but she's kind of falling in love with Hedgehog too.


We all sat and had bacon and eggs this morning.

Then Hedgehog stayed home while we walked to the store.

Lunch was pita bread, humus, some grapes and freshly baked cookies.

For dinner, Hubby grilled steak, portabello mushrooms and red pepper. I steamed the artichokes. And that's real mayo.


That night the little boy asked if Hedgehog could snuggle.

Hedgehog Love.

  6. I love the Hedgehog now. I'm right there with Tish missing my daughter's love of Winnie the Pooh...whose songs by the way, can stay a distant memory...and I actually thought of having another one. Well it's actually my millionth thought...I'm going to be 37 in Aug and I'm not married. Am I crazy?
