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.

    Special time for all of you – and a great hands on experience for her to understand how it was made.
