Have you become acquainted with Old Bunny? If you haven't I think you ought to should.
My son's friend had a birthday party this week. Which meant Old Bunny needed a birthday. Long story short, I ended up making old bunny a carrot. It was a super easy project and I think it looks quite good.
Old Bunny is extremely important in our family we can't leave on vacation without him. But he is not allowed to leave the car on vacation. I'm sure he will become even more important when in a year from now I get rid of the thumb sucking blanket, but until then he is only supplementary he is not needed for bed time and such.
