Have you ever Loved something so much you wear it out?????
Yes, Mr. Bumble has been loved so much but he is still going strong with a little help of needle and thread. He became part of our family in 1992. My daughter Hannah was only 6 months old. We took a trip to Buffalo, NY to visit relatives. My older daughter Hilary who was 4 at the time just had to buy this cute little bee for her sister because her bedroom was in the primary colors and it would match. His name became Mr. bumble from that day on. He has never missed a beat with Hannah. I can't tell you the number of times he has been left in a restaurant and remembered half way home. He was at all the Drs. appointments and on all the vacations. This little guy has been around and seen it all. My daughter Hannah is now 18 and will be graduating from High School this May. I often tease her that Mr. Bumble will probably be going on her honeymoon with her some day. To tell the truth I was always worried that she would loose him someplace. Worried not only that she would never sleep at night but that I would miss him myself. It's silly when you think about it but I have kind of gotten attached to him too. His little plastic eyes are now all white, his stripes are very faded, he is going bald in a few spots and is quite a bit thinner but he is still OUR Mr. Bumble and he will be loved forever.
