Farewell to a Dear Friend

A beloved friend has said goodbye to life in this world, victim of one too many beatings. Though we mourn her passing, it is now time to recognize the contributions she made to our family. A helper and support through the long days and wee hours of the night, with us from the moment we brought our first newborn home until recent days, we bid a fond farewell to...





















...the Boppy. May she rest in peace.

If we were close enough, I'd give you mine. Three kids and barely used. I preferred regular couch pillows!

LOL. My heart sunk there for a minute because a picture didn't appear right away, I was like beating? what. That was a good one. Boppys are the best.

*having a respectful moment of silence* Yes, we also had to get rid of our first one after #4. Our second one is still going strong, however, after 3 more! I bought it used, possibly at Once Upon a Child. I just can't remember. Anyway, it is holding up well!

Amy: Yes, beating, LOL! The boys were pummeling it in one of their pillow wars. It had already been ripped, sewn, re-sewn, and ripped again, but this time the "wound" was just too deep to warrant any further effort!

I threw ours out a few months ago. It had been sat on and used for a pillow (more than as a nursing pillow) to the point that it was so squashed flat it did me no good. I've used two bed pillows almost exclusively this time around.
