I think I crossed the line into crazy lady territory last week. I looked in the back of the car after morning school drop off, saw my daughter’s much loved rabbit who she’d very carefully wrapped in her equally loved blanket, then took him into the house with me so he didn’t get cold…..crazy right?
The thing is, Scruffy Rabbit is “real” according to Sydney and is such a part of her and her quirky personality that we’d both be heartbroken if he got lost. She dresses him, feeds him at the table with us in a high chair and absolutely cannot sleep without him. They are the cutest little pair and scruffy Rabbit has become such a part of Syd that I think that’s why I found myself looking after him, even if I did wonder what on earth I was doing.
This is scruffy rabbit sat in his tent around a “campfire”.
Scruffy rabbit lovingly sat up in the park.
I’m obviously very proud of both my girls, but Sydney has been exceptional over the last few weeks. Her two best little friends moved away and she has upped her gymnastics hours significantly, but has mostly taken both completely in her stride. I am completely in awe of her determination and amazing attitude to her sport. My little middle child is definitely growing up and has found a way to stand out rather than be the one that’s off our radar.
These two make me smile every day, whether it’s a warm arm wrapped around me when I wake up, a funny kiss before school or a little hand clutching mine, sometimes I still can’t believe I have two such lovely little girls.
It’s lovely when they find comfort in the favourite cuddly toys. Leo’s is a blanket, and after years of being so loved, it’s starting to show signs of it’s age… We will both miss it when it does finally come apart!
What a lovely post. Every home should have a scruffy rabbit or it’s equivalent. My girls have Bonnie and Sweetie and my little boy has two favourites, Dave and Fudge. I’ll be caring for them long after they have grown up.

hahaha I have done this too with my son’s Lotso stuffed toy. After the school drop off, taken him into the house like a real person! Habit I guess!
Oh how adorable. The bunny is so cute. I love how she’s looking after him and is being responsible for him. Teaching her some essential skills right there x

Both of my older children each have a soft toy that they adore, it’s lovely to see how they build a relationship with their teddies
Aww how sweet!! Only my middle boy has a favourite cuddly – and now he is 12 his is very scruffy indeed- but we cannot part with him!
Mini has Red Bear and he would be lost without hi, even at nearly ten Maxi doesn’t have anything though!
Such a cute little bunny, we have a hippo here who needs to be in her bed every single night :-)!xx

Aww how lovely! Scruffy Rabbit sounds wonderful 😉 It’s so cute when the have a cuddly toy like that! Well done with her gymnastics! x
Aww, lovely post. I still have two of my favourite childhood bears – they still sit on my bed, and I’d actually be devastated if I lost them!
I am a bit sad that none of mine have a favourite cuddly toy, although at least it saves hysterics if they misplace it. Glad to hear she is doing so well
