Barney has been a staple in our home for many years. The kids have all loved him when they were small, and now that Benjamin has outgrown him, we decided to let Katie adopt him as her latest "baby". Her babies are stuffed animals that she carries around, and she's VERY protective of them. However, when we tell her to "get her baby", she starts whipping them around, much like an animal trying to kill its prey.
When she's alone, she chews on them until their stuffing comes out. Barney was such a trooper. He lasted WAY longer than any of the other babies.
Good thing Katie's fixed, or we'd have to report her to CPS.
