This weeks Wednesday Words from me is a little cheesey I’m afraid, but it’s something I promised to share with you!
When I go into hospital, Bunny keeps my Tatty Teddy to cuddle when she misses me, and to remind her that even outside of visiting hours, she can phone me any time she wants to talk to me. You see, Tatty Teddy was given to me by my brother when I was in hospital 6 years ago. I didn’t know at the time of my Septicaemia (from a kidney infection) that I was pregnant with Bunny. Tatty Teddy makes people feel better because he has a poem on his T-Shirt.

To steal my badge … You can’t this week as it has given me a 4 hour nightmare and nearly destroyed my blog! Hopefully will have it working next week. xx
Musings from a Mum says
That’s really sweet, what a lovely brother you must have. It reminds me of the Carole King song ‘You’ve got a friend’ which is one of my personal favourites.

My brother is awesome. I will have to look that song up! xx
Firefly Phil says
Aww… It’s lovely that something simple can convey so much love!
I think it’s helpful to try and keep things simple with a 5 year old who already has too much to think about. The teddy really helps her. xx
The Real MUmmy says
Lovely teddy and poem on its chest! Shy sleeps with my teddy now that I’ve had since I was about 9 I think. Hopefully she finds as much comfort in him as I did xx

Aww that’s lovely that you passed your teddy on. We swap back when I’m home so that my teddy and her baby rhino (that she makes me take to hospital) still belong to us – it’s the act of borrowing that makes my teddy soothing when I’m away. It probably smells of me. xx
The Brick Castle says
That’s really sweet. It reminds me of a different song which I have always got strength from – You Got The Love by Candi Staton, and more recently covered by Florence and the Machine 🙂
Thanks, I shall have to go check that one out as well. xx
What a lovely poem and a very cute teddy!

Yes I think so! It comforts Bunny and that’s what matters most. xx
Mummy Glitzer says
I was going to say the same as Musings form a Mum! I sang that song in the school choir, although I am no longer sure HOW I got into the choir! 😉

LOL, I can’t sing AT ALL! Probably even less so after they’ve poked around my vocal chords again! xx

I know it’s Thursday, not Wednesday, but I did get the poem up on Wednesday (I scheduled the post!) because I love this idea and I want to have some “Hurrah” for poetry going on. Poetry is great, whether on a teddy jumper, or in an ancient tome.
