Post whatever, I don't care. If you're frustrated and need to get something out. Excited over something you would feel otherwise stupid saying? Have fun. Have the overwhelming urge to be an asshole, go to town! Just, uh, be aware your comments will probably be screened. IP logging is off.

Spring is coming and with it, new beginnings. Slough off whatever you need to.

I am SO upset over my daughter's stupid lost teddy bear that it isn't even funny. And I wish I could say "It's because I'm pregnant and irrational", but I'd probably feel this way regardless. Mostly, I'm irritated by everyone around me shrugging and saying "Yeah, whatever, it's a teddy bear" because I can distinctly remember not being able to sleep or eat if I didn't have my own stuffed animal as a kid.

I just feel like... fuck. I KNOW it's just a bear. But she's had it since she was born and she keeps asking for "missing teddy" and it just breaks my heart. I am kind of mad at my husband, and the daycare lady, since I wasn't the one who dropped her off and somehow lost a giant teddybear in an 8 hour time span, from the back door to the car. I think it's just indicative of a larger problem, where I feel like if I don't do something, it won't be done. If I don't make sure she has this bear, it gets lost. If I don't make her lunch, it won't be made. If I don't do the grocery shopping, we have no food. Overall they're little things, but having to be the sole person responsible for basically THE ENTIRE FAMILY is exhausting. People wouldn't bathe if I wasn't there to remind them, geez.

This makes me really sad. :( Is there any way you can replace it with the same bear? Have you tried to find one like it online? Or maybe asked the daycare to send home a note with the other kids to check if they have it, because it belongs to someone who misses it very much?

Fuck anyone who says it's just a teddy bear, I totally get where you are coming from and I am 24 and don't have kids.

I'm looking at replacements online at the moment. Sadly, the manufacturer doesn't sell their items in Canada anymore, which is frustrating. [They used to carry them at Toys/Babies R Us and Chapters/Indigo, but we haven't seem them for about a year now]. eBay seems to be my best bet at this point in time, although my husband is kind of rolling his eyes at my concern over this thing because "she'll forget about it soon!".

I'm concerned about a replacement being rejected, because ours was very well worn. This thing has been dragged about for two years, and because it's organic cotton with vegetable dye, it basically turned this overall off-white cream colour [it started white and pink]. I'm really hoping the daycare lady has actually looked for it over the 3-day weekend. If it hasn't turned up, I'll see if she can ask other kids/parents because I know we've had weird things appear in our bag before. Makes me feel like a dick, but I just feel like everyone else is being really apathetic about this when it's been giving me constant anxiety attacks.
