Letters from Bedtime Bear: Wot so Funee?

Wot So Funee?We went to visit Grandma recently. Naturally our bedtime bears came with us. Every single time we pack to come home, we leave something behind. Last time it was all Mummy’s underwear, in a Florida hotel. The rest of the holiday saw her rinsing her smalls every night and hanging them under the ceiling fan to dry before tomorrow!

This time we left Doudou. He was quite comfy, snuggled under the duvet, but an emergency phone call was put in to Grandma to retrieve him from his cosy hiding place. He sent a couple of emails to Mummy regarding his progression from bed, to box to post office. And he arrived today:

Thank you Grandma, we know how you like to be informed of safe arrivals, so please accept this video of acknowledgement. But we have one question: how exactly did you teach him to write?

  1. Ahhh glad you got him back home safe and sound! I would definitely panic more over a much loved teddy than much needed undies!

  2. Lovely of Grandma to mail Bear back home. I completely understand the importance of bedtime stuffed animals for our children though, they did drive me crazy, especially when they went missing.

  3. Ah we had the exact same issue two weeks ago! Bunny had to stay in our room until Royal Mail bought Rhino and the Easter Bunny home! It was heartbreaking, seeing how upset she was 🙁

    I’m glad Doudou got home safe and sound xx

  4. Well done Grandma and DouDou! Where there’s a will there’s a way and clever little DouDou and his neat writing skills 😉 We would have complete meltdown if we left Mousey behind, I think I check on Mousey’s whereabouts more than my handbag. Glad he is home safe and sound x

    • I panicked the first time we actually lost GG’s bunny. We were on holiday and I had to tell her that Bunny got bored and went home early. Then hubs dropped me off at the toy shop on our way back home and I whizzed in and popped him in her bed before she saw me. She was a wiley one though even then – she just said “Mummy, Bunny got fat…”

  5. I LOVE this! (possibly not surprising – it’s practically a picture book in itself).
    What a lovely little bear cub he is – and Doudou’s not bad either…

    • The amount of Bedtime Bears we have for GG – (she wouldn’t leave him at home like the Bug did) is ridiculous. We have ink hat bebear, cut hat bebear, stitched hat bebear and broken nose bebear…

  6. thank goodness he got the bear back! I know how stessful things get in our house when blue bear goes missing. Had the same situation with my underwear when we stayed spontaneously in Cardiff overnight – luckily it was only one day – can’t imagine having to do that for a whole holiday. xxx

  7. He’s a very clever bear!!
    When I was little I had a ‘larry’ that I couldn’t sleep without who once had to be retrieved from an aeroplane about to head back to Italy!
