Sarah recently made the pictured teddy bear at the Build-A-Bear store in Knoxville, and for a week or so the bear was her constant companion, which led me to wonder if she was going to kick Kitty Leeter, her favorie stuffed animal, to the curb. Then, last week, she bought two new stuffed animals, both cats, at the zoo, and they started getting most of her attention. I have a soft spot for abandoned toys, so I asked her if she was indeed kicking Kitty Leeter to the curb. She denied it vehemently, and Kitty Leeter is getting more attention these days.
My family will be pleased to know that I can still use my Spencer guilt-giving ability when it is needed.
