My hospital had an open house this past weekend. They also had a Bear Clinic as well. I took the kids to one when Joshua was about 4 years old. He still has very fond memories of it and has asked when we could go again.
The kids had both bought a new Webkinz that morning so Joshua chose to take Tigger rather than his beloved, Ellie.
It saddened me a bit to watch Joshua at the Bear Clinic. He is getting to the point were he still wants to be a kids but also is enough pre-teen that he doesn't want to look childish.
He appeared embarrassed at times. When Delaney was getting a balloon animal, she requested an elephant with a heart balloon. Joshua stood by and at first he said that he would pass. After seeing how cute the elephant was, he decided to set aside his pride and get one as well.
Delaney had a great time. She did play shy at first.
I so wish that they could keep their childhood wonder and innocence. They grow up so fast.
