My mother tried to give me other bunnies but it just wasn't the same.   I learned that day that best friends come in all shapes and sizes.  I have many memories that I treasure but this one is special."

It was time to go home from Mulberry Daycare after a long day of eat, sleep, and play.

I always loved that little pink stuffed bunny sitting on one of the shelves.  I always played with it.  For some reason, on this particular day, I just did not want to leave that bunny.  I would not let go.  The teachers realized I wasn’t going to let go, so they finallly gave in and let me keep the bunny.  Going home that afternoon I was a very happy camper.

Naturally, my mother stuck my bunny in the washer to get clean since it was dirty and many other small children used it.  I couldn’t wait to sleep with my bunny that night.  Once it came out of the dryer it seemed very different.  It turns out that when my mother put it into the dryer the heat made it lose its soft touch.  Normally you would think that I would be really upset that it got ruined, but the truth it, I actually loved it.  I couldn’t describe the texture so I called it Crunchy Bunny.
