I’ve used this picture once before for a Wordless Wednesday, but it was the first one I thought of for today’s theme because it fit so well.
My son and a friend had been playing with a bouncy ball in the living room (ahem!!) The ball didn’t hit Papa Bear, but it fell on the floor under the shelf. When my son’s friend retrieved it, he somehow accidentally ran into Papa Bear, and the bear’s leg broke off.
You might be able to see other scars of the poor bear family. Something about hanging their legs over the side like that causes them to get accidentally bumped into and knocked off, even though I have put them into a corner where there is no traffic — except for retrieving stray bouncy balls and dusting. Some time ago my husband ago my husband attached them to the shelf (with sticky tac, I think), so they don’t fall off any more. But they do still get bumped into.
