My Story

My name is Marlowe Theodore Bear. I am a teddy bear-- a boy teddy bear to be exact. I am six years old in bear years. I live with my mom in a house on top of a hill. I have a sister named Chloe and many friends. My mom lets me play on the computer sometimes. I go on the internet-thingie and see all these teddies who have written their life stories on their web pages. Mom says that I can write my own and post it on my blog!

I don't really remember a lot of my babyhood. The first thing I remember is sitting on the shelf of the plant store that my mom's mom bought me. Mom says it was called Steins. I remember watching some my brothers and sisters leave-- and I was waiting for the right person to pick me up and bring me home. It was lonely on the shelf waiting, but I knew that there had to be someone out there for me. I was very glad when my mom's mom picked me out of the teddies to bring me home. She then put me in a box and wrapped me up. I didn't understand why I had to go back into a box. It turned out that I was going to be a Christmas present for my mom-- although I didn't understand exactly what that was yet!

I spent a few days inside the box. It was somewhat stuffy in there, but I could hear all sorts of interesting things happening around my box. Mom finally opened my box and welcomed me into her family. She named me Marlowe after a character in her favorite book! Then my big life as Marlowe Theodore Bear started!

Mom and I connected right away. She says that there was just something about me. I say it is my cuteness, but she says that it was something deeper then that. She says that from the very first day that I slept with her at night, she slept more soundly. She says that I comfort her when her day goes bad-- I tell her that is part of any teddy bear's job. She tells me that I do an especially good job at it. I tell her that she does an especially good job of taking care of me!

I like all sorts of different things. I love books—I will read about almost anything. I especially like books on cars, trains, and planes. My favorite book right now, although I know it has nothing to do with any of them, is Make Way for Ducklings, by Robert McCloskey, mostly because I like ducks and I like the idea of going and visiting the statues in Boston some day. I also like looking at atlases and maps—I like to plan trips that someday Mom and I might take. I especially like my Mom’s gazetteer, because I can pick out which road we live on! I like going outside and listening to the birds and feeling the breeze. Sometimes, Mom takes me out to the garden and I get to help her play in the dirt. I also like taking pictures of Mom’s pretty flowers. I listen to all sorts of different music with Mom and watch movies with her. I especially like the Disney movie Cars! I browse the internet with my Mom, generally looking for new books to read, new websites to browse through, and new blogs written by other plushies! The only sport I really like is baseball. Someday, I want to go and see a game! I mostly like to spend time with my Mom and my friends!

January 23rd, 2007

My mom is on vacation! She's been spending lots of time with us. She's been reading us books, letting us listen to whatever music we want to, and having lots of snuggles! It's been lots of fun. I've been helping her with her math. She's taking algebra at the local technical college for her degree. Being a bear makes lots of subjects easy for me, and math just happens to be one of them! I like algebra-- with all the neat rows of numbers and letters. It's a lot easier for me to tell Mom what to write though! Bear paws don't work well with pencils!

Then for her social studies class, we read a chapter on the US Constitution and took notes. I don't mind history at all-- especially American history, but it was kind of boring! She says that the book moves quickly onto more current subjects, so I'm glad about that!

January 13, 2007

It's been ages since I last posted. My mom works at a bookstore and it's really, really, really, really busy during the holidays. She's been way too tired to do any posting-- and since I'm part of her naps, neither have I! The typing thing is very hard when you're a bear, so I wait for her. This time, we waited four whole months!

Things have been pretty calm around here. Mom brought home a new Build-A-Bear. She's a little puppy and her name is Gracie. She's got a shiny collar that the girls think is really cool. She's sort of a Christmas present from our Mom's sister. She got her some gift cards from BAB and Gracie is what Mom spent them on. She'd post here, but she only speaks Dog. Right now, we haven't really figured out how to translate it to English yet!
