Anyway, I recognized this bear immediately. When Kassidy and Kameron were little we watched thousands of hours of this particular bear... do you recognize him?!
(This picture is from today obviously, not from the hospital lol)
Yep, that's Bear in the Big Blue House.
This bear stayed with Kennedy the whole time we were in the hospital. He "held" her arm while she got blood drawn, he had "blood drawn" himself by doctor Kennedy when she was feeling better, and Kennedy named him "Sparkly". I tried to tell her the story of Bear in the Big Blue House and all his friends but she insisted that, no... he is SPARKLY! Ok then. :)
Yesterday, Kennedy carried Sparkly around and introduced him to all her other toys and I finally decided that she needed to REALLY meet Bear... uhh... Sparkly. So we got on YouTube last night and found some full episodes of Bear in the Big Blue House.
Kennedy was amazed! "LOOK Sparkly, it's YOU!" She said. Frank, Kassidy, Kameron and I sang along to all the songs which totally amused Kennedy because we may or may not have sounded a little bit crazy. ;)
It's kind of surreal to see
Bear Sparkly back in our house again as I thought we were done with preschool cartoons, but I guess a little reminiscing (and some crazy singing) is good every once in awhile. :)
