It was a very serious discussion, the subject being the care of her child’s beloved teddy bear.
Her daughter was about to go to sleepaway camp for the first time ever – and her daughter had made the very important decision that – unlike all of her other adventures so far – teddy bear should stay home. Her daughter explained that she wanted teddy bear to be safe and clean and not lost or forgotten somewhere at camp. Her daughter was willing to make the journey alone if she knew that teddy bear was going to be at home waiting for her return. So the mother agreed to keep teddy bear safe and clean and not lost or forgotten. The mother agreed that teddy bear would wait and that her daughter was selfless and brave for going alone to camp.
The mother just was not sure about herself, that’s all.
