Last week Jarret and I fulfilled a long time wish of Maddie’s and took her to Build-A-Bear Workshop. She was so-so excited and kept smiling ear-to-ear!!!
We surprised her Friday morning when we told her she got to stay home from school and spend the whole day with Mom & Dad. Maddie was in need of a personal day and special time.
She kept saying, “It’s special time for Maddie.”
Our first stop of the day was the mall so she could make her bear. I thought for sure it was going to take her a long time to pick which bear she wanted and in all actuality she chose the Shopkins bear right away and was ready to stuff!
I took a video of the process which I put below.
Jarret loved spending this one-on-one time with her.
The whole process was cute and fun!
I think one of my favorite parts was when she was giving her bear and “air” bath to get any loose fluff or fur off.
I think it was Maddie’s favorite too and she was really concentrating because she had to step on a foot pedal to make the air come out and then brush the bear; a multi step process.
Big task for Maddie!
She picked out a matching little outfit and slippers.
Now we were off to finish our errands and you better believe she accompanied us everywhere we went.
