Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Our night with Tomasito

Well, if finally happened. La Nina's name was drawn as the lucky child to bring home the class bear, Tomasito. Having Tomasito in your home isn't all fun and games. It's work! He and his green backpack are required to accompany its sitter to all activities and meals. Then, before returning the bear to class tomorrow, we need to record our activities in the Tomasito's book with pictures AND a little write up.

After leaving school, we took Tomasito to dance with us, then tonight he helped La Nina and the Magster Build a Fairy on the Disney web site. Then, we had to feed him dinner and put him to bed. I'm telling you it was quite a night.

In the morning, we'll document all of Tomasito's adventure and return him, his green backpack and the book to school in the morning so another lucky classmate will have the chance to take him home. Given the number of kids in the class, I figure we'll get the bear at least once a month for the rest of the year.

And in case you're wondering, the Magster was green with envy over all the fuss. But she told me she'd feel all better if I took her to Build a Bear tomorrow! What a little scamp!
