My boy’s best friend got hurt

I was putting a bandage on my son's arm this morning before daycare. I was headed out of town on a work trip for the night so we were hugging and kissing and rubbing cheeks (that is his new thing to show love). Then it happened… "Mommy, where's baby?" Last week, my boy's best friend, baby penguin, fell off the bed for a second and our pug chewed his eye a little, but we saved it. Today…the eye is gone. Baby had fallen off the bed during the bandage/love routine and Abby got him. 🙁

There were quite a few tears and a little broken heart. Mommy may have had a tear as well. I was able to bandage the eye for daycare and a trip to Granny and Pap's house tonight. Daddy says he will talk to Dr. Dan, our pastor and landlord, who is also an eye surgeon (for real, IRL) and we will work on Baby more this weekend. For now, please think about Baby today…and hug all your movies. :-D!!

Just in case you're wondering, Baby is now Good As New!!


  1. Oh poor Guy and poor penguin! If anything happened to Lucy my daughters lamb it would be the end of the world as we know it. I hope poor baby will be fixed very soon

      We were feeling the end of the world-ish yesterday, but since it was just an eye I think we can fix him. 😉

  2. Great Aunt Linda says:

    Oh, no, say it ain’t so. Poor little Penguin. I just came back from the eye doctor today and have lots of free samples of eye drops if you need them. All will be well. The doc can fix him right up, I bet. Big hugs to B.

    • janet says:

      Linda, it was so sad. He crawled under the bed and came out and was just heartbroken. He did this a few days ago too when the dogs got out and ran in the neighborhood. He thought they were leaving us. I think he’s going to have a VERY tender heart. <3

  3. Too cute! Isn’t it funny how attach our children become to things. Great job on trying to fix him up for your little one 🙂

    • janet says:

      Thank you, Amanda. He went 3.5 years without attachment and then suddenly this penguin…we bought him at the zoo because he was on clearance!

  4. Oh poor little penguin. Looks like he’s getting good care though!

      Me too…I’ve been wracking my brain all day with the best way to fix him. 😉

    Ugh! My daughter has a hippo that I got for my baby shower that even now at 6 – she sleeps with and takes everywhere. Well, when our 2 year old dog was still a pup, she left Hippo lying around and the dog nicely ate half of hippos face. Fortunately, it was still flapping and attached so Dr. Mommy had to do surgery to sew the face back together. You can tell, but at least Hippo was salvaged. Here’s hoping someone can help Baby with some surgery!

      Hehe! I’m thinking surgery this weekend is in order!

    Nice bandage work there mom! Hope Baby is fixed up soon 🙂 This reminds me of my oldest when she was little. She had a stuffed dog that went everywhere with him. His ear got ripped off and she cried her eyes out and wanted to take him to the vet so they could fix his ear. Luckily she fell asleep and we got the ear sewn back on. She was soooo excited she cried again and told us thank you for a week!

      I called him at Granny’s tonight and he was good. He had even forgotten to tell Granny, but Papa saw it on Facebook so they got a look at him.

  9. Oh my goodness. This reminds me of Jasmine’s baby penguin, Shirley. I’m sure you’ve seen it. Shirley is in just about every photo of Jasmine I have. I hope Benjamin’s baby is okay. *Wink, love he bandage.

      I think I HAVE seen Shirley! The bandage was so handy because we had just finished his arm…I never knew I could be that kind of mommy. 😉

    Oh no! Hopefully Dr Dan can get Baby fixed right up!

    Glad it was just the stuffed animal, and i Hope you are able to get him patched up! 🙂

    • janet says:

      Oh no!! If it had been a puppy, I would have been the one crying!!

      I figure Granny and Papa will keep him distracted with all the new toys (they always have something for him) so we can fix him up on the weekend!
