When do kids outgrow stuffed animals? In this house, anyway, it’s clearly some age older than 8. There are more animals in the kids’ room than in a zoo. Their beds can get piled so high I wonder how they make room to sleep.
While both kids have been steadily growing their stuffed animal collection, they’re both spending less time with their blankets. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Alex carry around one of his scraps of blanket, and he used to sneak it everywhere. Patrick’s blanket doesn’t leave his bed. So in that way, at least, both are growing up.
