It’s my last Tuesday with the girls until mid-October. Yikes! I wanted to leave them with their birthday present so we went to Build-A-Bear at the mall.
You choose the animal you want, get it stuffed, and then you put in its heart. They do this drill with the kids and the little fabric heart:
Rub it on your funny bone so it’s silly. Rub it on your heart for lots of love. Rub it on your hair so it never has a bad fur day. Rub it on your ears so it listens to all your secrets, then rub it on your lips so it doesn’t tell. Rub it on your muscle so he’s big and strong. Wave it around your feet so it runs really fast! Spin around in a circle one time so it never gets lost. Put it on your side, so it’s always by your side! Put in on the person next to you so it will have lots of friends. Put it on your head so it’s super smart like you! Put it on your knee so it ‘needs’ you! Do your best dance move, so it dances as well as you! Put it on your cheek for lots of smiles, and your other cheek for EVEN more smiles! Hold it up in the air so your bear grows tall!
Make a wish: “squeeze it tight, close your eyes, and make a wish!” Kiss your heart on both sides to seal in the wish!
