Quite a few years ago now, one of Mummy's students gave her a thank you gift of a handmade "ballerina bear".
Yesterday the ballerina came out of her box for the first time since we moved to our current home (almost two years ago now). Elijah took an immediate shine to the cute little bear. It has become a common sight round our place to see him carting her around, regularly pausing to give her big cuddles and wave her around excitedly as if to say "Look, I have a new friend. Isn't she adorable?"
He's partial to dancing with his little ballerina as well. I think she reminds him of the little ballerina girls Mummy teaches on Monday afternoons.
