Anyways, these toys are not Little Lewie's favorite...they don't even come close. Little Lewie's favorite toy in the whole wide world is Mr. Mouse. Who is Mr. Mouse you ask? Well, let me introduce you...
Mr. Mouse is shy, playful, funny, and oh yeah, he's also a handmade puppet. He wasn't a Christmas present...in fact, he wasn't a present at all. He was my toy from the 70's that made its way down from the attic and into my mom's living room. One day she introduced Mr. Mouse to Little Lewie, and they've been best pals ever since.
You see, Mr. Mouse will play hide-and-go-seek, he'll chase Little Lewie around the house, he'll encourage Little Lewie to finish his dinner, he'll help Little Lewie clean up, and he'll even take a nap when Little Lewie is tired. If Mr. Mouse doesn't show up in the morning or afternoon, you better believe we'll hear about it. "Mouse, Mouse," Lewie will say again and again. Then, he will physically drag me to Mr. Mouse or, better yet, bring Mr. Mouse right to me. If he's on my mom's side of the house, then he'll insist that we go there to retrieve him.
Yes, Mr. Mouse, which wasn't my favorite toy when I was little, has become Little Lewie's favorite treasure of all time. Who knew a little boy and a little mouse could become best friends?
