The truth is that I have too many toys around my house, which is to say, around the house of an almost 88 year woman! There are still a few teddy bears here and there, but except for Priscilla and HER doll in the below photo, the others are all dragons. My children and grandchildren all say that my favorite toys - at Christmas, birthdays, Easter - were most often stuffed toys. The verse below was written for the teddy bear lovers among my offspring.
For little Teddy Bears,
So rub your furry little eyes
And toddle up the stairs.
Don't forget to brush your teeth —
But wait! Don't close your door!
You've left your boys and girls, again,
All scattered on the floor!
Take them up to bed with you,
Hug and hold them tight,
And they'll keep you warm and snuggly
Through the drowsy, dreamy night
