I like this one…. I think I will go and collect all of my teddy bears from the attic and sleep amongst them tonight as I wouldn’t want them thinking they’re unloved now would I? So looks like hubbies on the sofa tonight…. 😉
National Teddy Bear Day is observed annually on September 9th. We have all had a special cuddly teddy as a child. Some of us still have our teddy bear from our childhood. Whether or not you still have your childhood teddy, today is the perfect day to celebrate your childhood friend!
