On my list — my very long list — of things to do once my work eases up and the children’s sports and school schedules become less hectic and I thoroughly clean my house and… Well, you get the idea. The level and sheer quantity of “things to do” will always be a deciding factor on what I get done that is above and beyond the daily chores of life.
Scanning old baby photos is top on my list of “I must do this at some point, so that I can post on Facebook or my blog.” The baby photos are still in albums or in boxes. Ask me for a photo from about mid-2005 on and I can find a digital version in a second or two. Not so the photos from 1996 through early 2005. This is a shame because my oldest was 0 though 9, the middle was 0 through 7, and the little guy was 0 through 2 during the nondigital years.
Some photo gems missing from my online photo files…the girls’ first trip to Disney…various outings to either Sesame Place or Hershey Park…the zoo — Baltimore or the National Zoo…playing on the newly built swingset…playing in the old Little Tikes playhouse…my son toddling in the family room… The photos I dearly want to scan are the ones containing our dear friend… Winnie the Pooh!
As a child I was read and then read When We Were Very Young. I loved this book…short poems accompanied by Ernest H. Shepard’s illustrations. I know that when I was pregnant with my oldest child, Winnie the Pooh became our go-to “character.”
Was it the cuddliness of Pooh? The fact that I detested all the bumblebee, clown, and cutesy crib bedding, so fell in love with the Winnie the Pooh bedding set. Seriously, who wants a clown on a baby’s crib bedding? Or, perhaps because family and friends mobilized for with an avalanche of Winnie the Pooh toys, books, blankets, and even a Winnie the Pooh mobile.
Our daughter’s room became Pooh-themed…wallpaper and mobileand lamp, as well as crib sheets, blankets, stuffed animals, and wall art. She loved Pooh so much that we could not move her out of her nursery when the new baby arrived, so — you guessed it — we decorated a second Winnie the Pooh room with a different crib bedding and wall paper border. Our son had to have a Winnie the Pooh room as well!
In keeping with all that is Winnie the Pooh, I am proud to announce the release Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You Special Edition on DVD!

I was given the DVD for my review. I was not compensated for this post.
Thanks for the Review!
We love Winnie. The DVD is so expensive though.
