Shopping With MissM

We are doing Grown-Up Shopping :

Cocktail Dresses, High-Heeled Boots, Gorgeous Handbags,
Skimpy Vests, Fabulous Perfume, Tailored Coats.


And now we are in the Haberdashery
because MissM needs some thread.

MrsM
What do you need brown thread for?
MissM
To mend my Teddy Bear.

Betwixt and between. Such is the lot of a teenager.

You're never too old for your teddy bear! I still have mine.

Must be a very well loved teddy! I still have the red bunny I was given at 6 months old. I am trying to defend him against the Smalls ...

I might just add that I also purchased black thread to mend my school skirt. Now I think this is a Very Grown Up thing to do. Anyway who can just sit by when there is a teddy bear with a frayed ear?

You can't dress up their hearts to make them look older!

Miss M is right - I think she is showing great maturity in going to the assistance of a sore eared Teddy.

teddy bear mending shows that Miss M has concerns for others, is kind and nurturing, and not wasteful of resources, even old and tattered bears, - I mean you could have been shopping for a new bear too.

You go, MissM! I'm very impressed with your mending promptness. You inspire me to fix the hem on the skirt I wore to church yesterday which is currently fixed with safety pins and scotch tape.
