Totsnet: Teddy Bear Boundaries

totsnet smallTo be suspicious of my teddy?

Posted by ToyStory4

Like many of you I’m sure, I have a good friend, who happens to be a teddy bear. I’ll call him Steve, for the purposes of identify protection. Steve and I joined the family at the same time, just over a year ago, so we’re pretty close. He doesn’t say a lot – well anything actually – but he is good company and I’ve always felt I can trust him. Lately though, I’ve noticed a few things amiss and it’s making me question his loyalty.

Yet when I’m engrossed in an important Mega Bloks project, I’m just expected to roll over like an obedient puppy and wait to be tickled? I don’t think so, parents.

About my yellow cup?
Posted by TracyBeaker
I have a yellow beaker that I have been using for about a year now. My parents fill it with water, they give it to me, I drink it. All very easy. However, I have recently decided that on Tuesday afternoons, every other Friday and any time it rains, I do NOT want to use the yellow beaker. In fact, I don’t even want to see it. I find it deeply troubling to have it in my view at all and if it’s used as a means of offering thirst relief, I have no choice but to scream, stamp my feet and yell incomprehensible words for several minutes, until…
