Winnie the Pooh is kind of a big deal in our house. CJ loves all things Pooh. I guess this is probably my fault. I have a small (ok, huge) Pooh obsession. In fact, I have loved Pooh for so long that one of my aunts actually calls me “Pooh”. In my teens, I collected the now defunct Hunny Pot Points and saved up enough for a giant Winnie the Pooh doll. When I moved out of my mother’s house, I left giant Pooh in my old room. She did not want him, but I refused to get rid of him. I knew someday that giant Pooh would loved the way he deserved.
Last week, giant Pooh was cleaned and we surprised CJ with him. We even had a photoshoot at JCPenney Portraits with CJ dressed up as a hunny pot and Piglet. To say she was excited, is an understatement. I am so glad that I kept him for so many years. I know she just turned one, but I already have her Winnie the Pooh theme 2nd birthday party planned out. Giant Pooh will be the main attraction.
