In the past year or so Carson and Pooh grew apart, and Pooh had to sleep in the wagon with the other stuffed animals. I guess little boys do outgrow somethings and he would tell me that Pooh was for babies, not big boys. He said he still loved Pooh, but he didn't need Pooh to go to sleep at night. Bankey is another story. Bankey has NEVER slept without Carson and I do have a slight worry of bankey going away to college with Carson, but that is another story.
When Wayne moved ahead of us to Virginia, Carson seemed to need a little extra attention at night. One night I discovered that Pooh has regained his place of honor, keeping Carson company at night while he dreams. I personally am glad to see him there, and you can tell Pooh is a little worn, a little dirty. But he is still Carson's best friend.
