It was finally Vivi’s turn to bring Friend Bear to our house for his overnight visit from school. With the letter V, Vivi says she was “deep, deep, deep in [the list of ] friends.” It was quite the treat to listen to her highlight the day as I wrote her words in Friend Bear’s journal. And it was also quite the lesson in project parenting - Vivi has all the ideas, words and will to do it her way which is the right way. For a type A workplace manager, not interjecting my own ideas was difficultly refreshing.
And as she went to sleep, holding friend bear tightly lamenting that it was too short of a time she also was so excited to hand off to friend William next. Maybe Friend Bear will come back again this year and as Vivi says, “if not, we will see him when James has a turn - glad his name is early.” Preschool should never end but when it does, I have a feeling Friend Bear will be a permanent memory mixed with the magical recollection of this time in your life. 🐻
