I have a pillow I’ve had since I was a baby. My grandma made all of the grandkids one and for some reason we all call them our “crunchies”???

It’s become so deteriorated over the years that the pillowcase has broken down and there’s about 1/10th of the stuffing left, but I just throw it in a new pillowcase and tie it in a knot. I’m scared to wash it cause I’m worried the rest of it will just evaporate haha.

Hey, my husband and I still have stuffed animals in the bed with us most nights. We have on in particular thats a favorite (my husband won him out of a crane game when we first started dating), a few years ago a dog got a hold of him and chewed his face off so I learned how to repair him and sewed him a new face myself. 

My childhood teddy lives in my daughters nursery now. My parents convinced me if I slept on his back at night he would protect me from bad dreams so he will get to carry that tradition on for my baby when she’s bigger.

I still have the “baby bear” that my mother received in the hospital. It’s pink & white. I call her Millie. I don’t think I could ever part with her. She’s been with me everywhere. Although I don’t sleep with her anymore, but she still means a lot to me. I have her perched up on my dressing table. Safely guarding all of my pretty things.

BeeDD :  My husband has to buy one (or rescue it from crane games) if it’s “looking at him”. So you’re not alone!
