Those of you who know Madeleine in person, know how much she adores Mickey. He can cheer her up, no matter what is wrong. Honestly. It’s a little disturbing, actually.
Last week a package arrived from Grandma (my mom). In that package were several Mickey items for Madeleine, but her favorite by far is the little stuffed Mickey Mouse. In fact, it already needs to be washed because she sleeps with it, drags it around the house, chews on it, smears her runny nose on it, etc. Ew! On Friday I had to explain to her that Mickey didn’t go to daycare and that she had to go put him down before we could get in the car. Eventually she did, but boy, she sure didn’t want to.
