Teddy Bear Day


This bear holds a special place in not only my sons heart, but in mamas heart as well.

2 years ago they held Build-A-Bear teddy day, where every bear was $1. Being a new mom, I didn’t want Jayden to miss out on anything. So we went to the mall, and to our surprise, there was a line out the door, BEFORE the mall even opened.

The mom in me, decided to wait, and stand in the line. I couldn’t believe I was waiting in line for a bear.

But I learned something that day. I learned about patience and coming up with new games and songs to sing to my 8 month old. I got creative.

We got to the mall around 8:30 am and finally got to the front entrance of the store at 5pm!! I literally completed a full shift of work!

What made that day so worth it, was the smile on my baby’s face. It wasn’t the fact that his mama was tired from standing in line all day, it was a smile that he had a new bear to call his.

Benny is a part of our family. He’s seen the highs and lows. He’s seen Jayden not feel his best, and is right in his bed to comfort him. He’s seen new toys and books climb in his bed.

But the one that always remains. Benny “The Jet”.

That’s his best friend.
