This bear has been Mike’s companion since he was about 1. Quite by accident we left it in his crib for many months, and then it became clear that he wasn’t leaving any time soon.
Theo got “bominited” on the other day, and it is a really good thing that Theo has 2 brothers — I recommend this technique highly — so I was able to get him clean in record time. (Shhhhh, don’t tell my secret!)
In this picture Theo is watching Mike play outside. I like that he takes such an interest in the activities of his young charge. That’s what makes a good companion.
Theo has been there for Mike when there were nightmares to be dealt with, new situations to enter, long car trips, and he’s a real trouper! All hail Theo!
