Ode to The Pink Bunny

Last night I slept with one of the two soft pink bunnies Ted chose for Mae. When we send her care package, the bunny and a blankie will hopefully retain much of our scent. It was something, sleeping with that little bunny. I know that many children don't actually like stuffed animals at all, and that I need to find a blanket for that purpose. But, blankie or bunny, it was a sweet realization that someday, Mae might vaguely recognize the scent of these strange new people. Something as tiny and cute as a bunny holds so much promise and excitement for me. I am looking forward to three more months of cuddling with that little bunny.
