Toy? For this layout I decide to share Rainee's favorite toy... or should I say kind of toy... doggies! I remember the first time she saw a stuffed dog... she fell in love instantly. She was 18months old, it was 2 days before Christmas and we were out getting a couple of last minute things for my dad's birthday.... and just as we were about to leave, Rainee spotted the toy section... and since she had been such a good girl, I took around looking at all the toys... that's when she saw... DOGGIE!! She was in love... he was soft and cuddly... I tried to put it back and get going... but she didn't want to let him go. I tried telling her it was his bed time, I even got an employee involved to convince her DOGGIE had to go to bed and we needed to leave. But she wouldn't have it. She wanted DOGGIE!! When we started to walk away... she broke out in tears... crying and calling for DOGGIE... which of course broke my heart... so I caved and bought her DOGGIE!
He is still with us... much worn and totally loved.... but along with him she probably has about 50 others 'doggie' friends. Each one is loved loved loved... each one has a name., which she never forgets or gets mixed up on... not like mom does. She loves playing doggie doctor... doggie dog pound... you never find her watching TV or a movie without one... and on occasion I let her take one in the bath to play with.
So even though this layout isn't done with DOGGIE... but Tucker... I couldn't resist this photo or resist scrapping it as a reminder of her favorite toy(s).... Stuffed Doggies!!!
