Tonight Eli found my old Care Bear in his closet. Below is the conversation that followed the discovery of the bear.
Eli: What kind of bear is this?
Me: It is a Care Bear. It was Mommy’s when she was little.
Eli: Oh. What is its name?
Me: His name is Tenderheart.
Eli: Oh. I want to call him Thomas.
Me: Ummm. Ok. But his name is Tenderheart.
Eli: Nope, he looks like a Thomas to me. Thanks Mommy! (He runs away.)
Smart little guy, strong willed too! Apparently Tenderheart is now Thomas! There is a new one around here that he could have for himself.
