Who Let the Stuffing Out?

We wondered why Lia was still sound asleep at 4:30 in the afternoon when she usually wakes up from her nap around 3.

Hmmm… What could be wrong?

I sent Vivienne in to wake Lia – gently!

It was then that we realized why she was so utterly exhausted: she must have spent the first hour of her “nap” removing the stuffing from her beloved Woofi the Missionary Dog.

In the spirit of laparoscopic surgery, each little piece of stuffing was pulled out of a hole no bigger than my pointer finger.

Lia was devastated when she woke up and discovered that Woofi was half the dog he used to be.  I saw in her the depths of the question, “WHAT HAVE I DONE?!” Seriously, it took her a full hour to recover.

It helped, of course, that Woofie smiled through it all. Sweetie. He slumbers this evening, restuffed and as loved as ever.

    Sounds like your lia is a bit like our brienna. Loved your last post, printed it and sent it to my sister who is dealing with the very same thing. You’re testimony has been a blessing to many.

    You know what is really wild? Ali poked a hole in her woofie the same night – right between the eyes! I guess it just wasn’t woofie’s day! At least she didn’t unstuff it – but I better sew it up before she thinks of it!

Let's keep in touch!
