Here’s another wonderful reunion story!
Mimzy arrived safely! Last night my daughter set up a small tent in her room to “camp out”. While she was asleep, we tucked Mimzy in beside her with a Barbie suitcase hooked around his arm and a small note that said, “Dear Francesca, I missed you…I hope you didn’t worry too much. I was off on a great adventure. Someday I’ll tell you all about it. For now, just hold me tight like you used to. I’m so glad to be home. Love, Mimzy”
She came bolting in our bedroom this morning with Mimzy in tow. She was so excited she was yelling and jumping around, and we couldn’t even understand what she was saying. Mimzy went to dance class this morning, where she joyfully told all the other kids and teachers about Mimzy’s adventures. Then she went to lunch with us…the ladies at Panera Bread thought she was the cutest thing as she shared the tales of her lost bunny. Mimzy has not left her side since this morning. At one point she did say that Mimzy looked like he was a different color. I retold the tale of the bunny spa that’s located in the center of Paris…. We checked the suitcase and sure enough there was an Eiffel tower sticker. She smiled and continued playing. Phew! Operation “FIND MIMZY” has been successful.
Again, I can’t thank you enough for bringing such joy to my little girl and my family (her 9 year old twin brothers were just as happy to see Mimzy!) Good things come to good people, and I hope someday a small favor is returned to you from a stranger.
My daughter lost her lovey recently in a department store, and it never turned up in lost and found. I’ve looked high and low for a replacement.
We bought in in the dollar bins at Target about 2 years ago during the Easter season. It is a beige bunny rabbit that is about 5-6″ tall without the ears. Its ears stick up from the top of his head, adding another 1.5″ or so. He has black eyes and pink thread for a mouth.
With Easter coming up I’m hoping someone taking out decorations will come across this bunny and would be willing to help. For days now, my daughter has gone to bed with such sadness it just breaks my heart.
When she visits the Easter Bunny she’s going to tell him how sorry she is that she lost him (it was in her Easter basket). She doesn’t want any candy or any toys or anything…she only wants another “Mimzy”, which is the name of her lost bunny.
Can you please help?
