Grandma and the BuppaLapaloo Bear

"Gigi? What's this one?"  over and over again on Face Time, I enjoyed my grandson showing me the Christmas tree.  He asked me to identify each ornament on the tree and you could see his delight this year, at 2 1/2, with each and every treasure barely holding to a branch.  He is literally on the other side of the world, so Face Time must suffice, but is never enough.

The picture above was our first Christmas together and this year is the first one apart.  I miss my family so much, and love it when he recognizes I am the one on the phone.

As a proud Grandmother, I love to watch for gifts which have special meaning.  I was so excited when I received the BuppaLapaloo Bear...a toy which teaches what I teach...Joy and Happiness!

This precious little bear was created by someone familiar to many of us, Dee Wallace...remember?  The mom from E. T. the Extraterrestrial.  Besides a vibrant acting career, Dee is also a teacher and life coach.  She has a radio show and is overall dedicated to bringing joy and positive messages into the lives of children.

By touching his paw, children receive messages of happiness, joy and confirmation they are unique and special. (He has the sweetest little voice)
I cannot wait to get this little bundle to my grandson.

Maybe he will Face Time me and ask, "Gigi? What's this?"
