The bear who changed sex

Poor little Xavier, he’s been sick and so spent most of today curled up on the settee under his new blanket with his favourite cuddly toy, Mummy bear, to hug. Mummy bear was Flo’s bear when she was Xavier’s age, but thirteen years ago she was a he and was called Snowy.

Julie -- what an adorable and beautifully rendered sketch ... you take one look and go 'ahhhhhhh' .... hope he's feeling better -- you've captured such a tender, touching moment so so well!

Lin, thank you, apparently this bug is three days of not being able to hold anything down, so another day to go!

Oh, this is sweet! And what a wonderfully accomodating bear!

Linda, I have this theory that the bear thought, "Well that's it my career is over" when Flo hit about six and he was retired to a shelf to just look decorative. So the arrival of Xavier and coming out of retirement to be the love object of another toddler was wonderful news and well worth undergoing a sex change!
