Daddy Teddy Bear
This is‘Daddy Teddy’ and he has been my bear for the last 47 years. When I was two years old my mother was having another baby (my little brother) at home. So when she went into labour, she sent me to sleep over at my Nan’s house who lived nearby. My Nan gave me this bear to sleep with to keep me calm and I can still remember it lying next to me. When it came time to go home in the morning, I started crying because I wanted my new bear with me and so my Nan let me keep him.
Many years later when my I was having a fight with my brother in our bedroom, my little brother threw Daddy Teddy at me. I ducked out of the way but the teddies hard plastic nose hit our bedroom window and smashed it!
