My mom has kept my room in their house almost the same as it was when I lived there, including keeping my old pink teddy bear on the bed. The first few nights in Sweden my middle child woke up a few times very sad, even though I was sleeping right next to her in the same floor bed. She is used to having quite a few stuffed animals in her bed at night and she probably missed the comfort she gets from having them around. During the second night, it occurred to me to give her my teddy and from that night on, she carried the teddy around with her everywhere. Of course Teddy also joined her many times on the swing in my parents’ back yard.
