A Little Duck for a Little Girl

When our daughter was a baby, my parents bought her a very fuzzy, soft, yellow stuffed duck to snuggle with. Well, "Duckie" as it has affectionately become known as, has been with us ever since. The entire house would be in panic mode if Duckie happened to disappear (as he would from time to time--sometimes with the help of big brother) with all out in search parties to find Duckie before our daughter would totally melt down (sometimes we couldn't find it fast enough, and a meltdown would indeed occur). **Shhhh...we even bought a spare duck who looks exactly the same in case Duckie ever permanently disappeared** Now that she is turning 7 in two days, she has pretended that Duckie isn't as important as he once was, but at night there she is snuggled up with him as always. She loves ducks in every shape and form now.
While at a bead shop recently, I saw this sweet little duck bead and just knew it was meant to be hers for her birthday. I can't wait for her to open it. I know she will like it.
