If we put all of our stuffed animals in rubbermaid tubs, we'd have six or seven.
No, I'm not kidding.
And yes, we weed through all the stuffed animals all the time and get rid of ones that have lost interest or sentimental value.
All three of my kids prefer playing house with their stuffed animals over traditional dolls. Jaina and Jayce still play with their Build-a-Bear and Ugly Doll stuffed animals.
I bet you can take a guess at what Jocelyn likes to play with the most.
Jaina has taught Jocelyn an alternate version of "Hush Little Baby" which includes a grizzly bear going to time-out. Jocelyn wanted to wrap her Baby Mickey up in a swaddle so she could sing it to him. Jaina is such a great big sister.
Hush, little babyDon't say a word.Momma's gonna buy youA Mockingbird.And if that mockingbirdWon't singPapa's gonna buy youA diamond ring.
And if that diamond ringTurns to brassMomma's going to buy youA looking glassAnd if that looking glassGets brokePapa's gonna buy youA billy goat
And when that billy goatGets scaredJaina's gonna buy you aGrizzly bear!(And that Grizzly Bear is going to go to Time-out for pulling your hair!)
