This is “Baby”

She’s Caroline’s best buddy.

Baby recently spent the night (unintentionally) at Hobby Lobby. Our lives were a big ol’ pile of tears and sadness during those 18 hours. We didn’t realize Baby was missing until bedtime and the last place Caroline had her was in the buggy at Hobby Lobby.

I frantically called the store at 8:45 (after picking up the house, turning it upside down and shaking it) and they were closed.

Caroline was devastated.

When I was reading her bedtime story I stopped and asked if she remembered getting Baby out of the buggy at the store.

She looked at me and said, “I don’t want to talk about that.”


Somehow we all made it through the night and she asked if Baby was back as soon as she woke up.

I headed over to the store…fingers crossed and prayers going….and guess what?!


*happy dancing tears of joy*

Whew! I am so relieved. On my way out of the parking lot I couldn’t help but think…

Dang, Baby. What’s it like to spend and entire night in one of the greatest stores of all time?!

Carolinis was so happy to see her Baby.

    Oh, the sweetness in this post… I am so glad she(you) found Baby! I’m not sure what we would do if Will lost Monte, his best friend/teddy bear for even a night… Caroline is one brave little chica!
