William has finished preschool.  Drew has finished kindergarten.  They both had ceremonies at school the last couple nights.  Surprisingly I wasn't emotional.  Maybe it's because I was preoccupied a bit with the week's unexpected activities and I'm thinking maybe that's a good thing.  I tend to get stupid over milestones, as you know.  Anyway, as a celebration for both kids I decided we'd take them to Build-A-Bear.  Drew has asked in the past to make a Build-A-Bear and I've always said no.  Not because I'm mean and heartless but because a $50 teddy bear that she'll NEVER play with was just out of question.  Callmecrazy.  I know the process of making the bear is part of the fun so this was something a kept in my back pocket for a special treat.  Graduation was the right time to whip this baby out.

It was a good day.


  1. my kids love build a bear. they have always gotten them for each other for christmas. they record a message to each other to put in the bear and then i have their voices to remember how small they were. im sure they will love their bears and play with them often. i will bring lakota over with whole family of them and they can play together.

  2. Great idea and all, but a rainbow bear?...Not that there's anything wrong with that!

  3. ahahah!! OMG! I feel the same way. And in fact, we just went to SD and Downtown Disney this past weekend and I've always said no to Build A Bear. This time, I don't know why, but Ryan said maybe, which turned into a Yes. but instead of purchasing an full on outfit each for 2 bears, I said yes to a $10 bear and 1 accessory of any kind that is less than $10. still came out to $40 fricken dollars!! CRAZY! i shoulda told him this was his grad gift.
