We’ve never forgotten them. They have spent countless nights in hotels and friends’ homes with us. They even accompanied us on a cruise. But this morning in the disorganization I created by procrastinating, I forgot to grab Audrey’s “My” (translation: blankie) and Bear. I realized it when we were just an hour out of Nashville. Had we been just an hour from home, I probably would have turned around and gone to retrieve them.
I expected a flood of Drama when I broke the news to the Princess, so I mustered up all of the enthusiasm I could and asked, “Do you want to go to K-Mart when we get to the hotel and pick out a new My?!?” She bought into my enthusiasm wholeheartedly, made a rather quick choice and snuggled her new, soft My all the way back to the hotel. Her only concern when we got back was, "Can we take my new My home with us?"
