Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
The Velveteen Rabbit.
I heard this quote from the Velveteen Rabbit today on the radio and burst into tears.
I don't know why it had that effect on me.
This is a photo of my mother's new bunny.
His name is Buggs.

Buggs is adorable. I've never read the Velveteen Rabbit. It's a bittersweet quote.

I used to have a tape of that story I'd listen to OVER and OVER and fall asleep to when I was a kid. It always made me cry too!

Cute bunny! I love the Velveteen Rabbit. I got a copy shortly after my daughter was born and can't wait until she is old enough for me to read it to her!
