Rusty.....

This is Rusty.
She was given to Master 8 as a baby and she is the most loved teddy in the world.
Master 8 has slept with her every night for 8 years and she has lost some of her "plumpness" from being squished to death everynight.
He takes her on sleep overs and doesn't care what the other boys say. She has been for show and tell, a teddy bears picnic, on holidays, on planes and on a train.
For the first two years of her existance in our family Hubs and I thought "she" was a "he".
But not so!
I have a feeling that when Master 7 came along, that is when we found out that Rusty was a girl......
I wonder why?
Anyway, with scene set, Master 8 (soon to be 9) said to me the other night, whilst squishing his teddy,
"Mummy, I wonder what Rusty would do if she were on TV?".....
I said, "Maybe a Ballerina?"
"Then she would have to have a tutu and pink ballet slippers" he replied...
The cogs started turning.......Perhaps Rusty would need her own Christmas Stocking this year with her new ensemble?
Now, you have to realise that this son of mine, master 8 is a real boys boy. He loves Footy, soccer, running, climbing, wrestling, tennis and watching "Wipeout".
So his genuine cutesy love for this teddy often amazes me.
So, at craft group last night, I put the finishing touches to the tutu and made the other girls giggle about the funny story! One also suggested I should make a head dress. Is that going a bit too far?
Maybe. Just the slippers to do then.....

Knowing your Lad I am amazed and moved to read of his love for his "Girl" bear!
My Fella has a sealpup and he too could'nt care who knows about his Needing it to sleep with him.
Confident kids eh?
I think a little elastic headband like evryone used to put on Baby girls Bald heads would complete things!!

Young boys have a mind of their own and they do love beauty and . A gs wanted to buy his mother a bootifull thing I couldn't see what he wanted until he pointed at tha bootifull thing --- A small Indian cut glass oval box. Trawled through all the posts and enjoyed the new house.
