Are you ever too old?

Well apparently !!

When my son was born over 14 years ago, I knew I wanted to decorate his room with the theme, Noah's Ark.He had a few items, photo frame, plaque, quilt cover, a hanging quilt I made, and a large cushion.

But after a while, I started to notice a couple of new friends had moved in, bears. I didnt think much of it, at first, but they gradually multiplied!

A COLLECTION HAD FORMED, right before our eyes!

As the years went by, more bears appeared,and before long, my son was handing over the Noahs Ark ,for the bears!

A couple of years ago, the Bears all moved up to the shelf in the wardrobe, with Noah for safe keeping.

Today, my son came to me with a box full! He needs the space for bike gear, posters," you know, general teen stuff", he tells me......this is a day I wont forget!

Actually, Im sure he wanted to do it years ago, but knew it would upset me. He's gone to the dark side...

Of course I will keep these, I mean, it is a collection that just grew on its own, it has to stay. Maybe he'll get them back when he has his own children, in 20 years!!
