The Life and Times of Fluffy


I hope you all don't think it is easy being a sheep.  Sheep have all sorts of responsibilities.   Now that Little Buddy and Fluffy are best friends, the work load for Fluffy has increased tenfold!  Fluffy thought it was tough having all those little lambs running every which way.  They are nothing compared to a little boy!  Little Buddy thinks Fluffy is the greatest, and thankfully Fluffy seems to feel the same.  Not many sheep would wear a shirt, while listening to a concert played by a boy with pants on his head.

Little Buddy thought Fluffy looked fantastic!


Fluffy has to help Little Buddy watch his new favorite show, Imagination Movers, every morning during breakfast.


Fluffy has to read books at nap time and bedtime just like Little Buddy does.  Fluffy's favorite book is Goodnight Gorilla.  It is a bestseller!  There are not many words so Fluffy can read it all by herself!


Fluffy has to take naps, too.  I am sure by nap time she is exhausted from all of her morning activities.  Sometimes she naps in the crib, sometimes on the floor, but she is always covered up in a blanket.


After nap it is back to work.  Riding on the blue rocking horse is lots of fun.


Fluffy spends most of her time right here on this truck getting pushed all over the house.  Well to be honest she is on the truck, off the truck, on the truck and off, over and over again.  She is such a good sport, always smiling, never complaining.  Fluffy has watched bath time, and almost got shoved into the shower one day.  Lucky for us the water was not running, we have to be careful that Fluffy does not felt!  Who knew that when Gracie surprised me with Fluffy in December, that this sweet little sheep would find a little boy right here in Florida to be best friends with?  She is always ready to go, loves to be hugged, snuggled and played with. Tomorrow she is going to Physical therapy with us, not only is she a good friend but a great motivator, too!  Busy times for a stuffed friend.

It is good to have a "job" to do. It's nice to feel important.

Looks like Little Buddy has grown!

Wonderful. My littlest boy still likes to wear his trousers on his head from time to time. We like Goodnight Gorilla here too. Ah, the happy world of little boys.

What a busy busy Fluffy!!! It is so good of her to spend her time with Buddy. You know perhaps she feels just a teensy weensy little bit displaced with not having her little lambs to care for and Buddy fills that space.

Love these pics!

How sweet is that! They were meant for each other. I bet life keeps them both so busy! They are just so cute together! A boy and his sheep. I bet Max is glad that he isn't Buddy's best friend!

Gracie Saylor said...

Oh the girls are going to love this post! I have photos ready to post of them watching Little Buddy with Fluffy and the swing set :) Two of the lambs came to visit me today. They have a new Nanny Taffy to help herd them.
I'm headed to CA to visit with my sisters for a few days...driving with my youngest daughter and son in law starting at 4am Sat. morning. Love you Mere and am so glad Little Buddy and Fluffy are enjoying each other. The lambs are a delightful addition to our household, too :)

linda said...

I'm so glad Fluffy and little buddy get on so well together, I bet fluffy will have lots of fun playing on the swing set too, what sheep wouldn't love playing on a swing, I have to say Meredith, that Florence is feeling just a tad jealous. :)xx

Stins said...

And I was always thinking it was an easy life being a sheep..... how wrong was I !
I really love that first picture, Little Buddy is such a sweetie!
Hugs, Mirjam.

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

Hi Meredith! you are crazy cute! My kids used to love running around with their pants on their heads. They used to pretend they were some sort of warriors. Always fun to watch. Fluffy BaaBaa is doing a fantastic job!
As are you...

Linda Powell said...

What a lovely post Meredith, I'm not surprised that Little Buddy and Fluffy have adopted one another. Fluffy is patient and accommodating and Little Buddy is playful and inquisitive. A perfect combination for good friends.

Take care Fluffy, Little Buddy and dear Meredith

Fluffy is really a hard working compassionate and nurturing sheep, not unlike yourself!

But seriously? How much do I love the pants on the head? That took me back to some really good times. I'm glad Little Buddy is making some too. Maybe later this weekend to shake off the cranky pants, I'll just put 'em on my head ;) all the best!

Your little guy is sure a cutie! And a discriminating reader, too; Good Night Gorilla is always part of my new baby gifts. I love that book! Fluffy looks like a perfect friend.

Rose Red said...

Isn't it great when little people find a new best friend. Fun to play with and also to help with "scary" things like pulling off band aids, or loud air conditioner ducts in car parks, or just for cuddling in bed at night.

Joyful said...

So adorable!

Fluffy has become a true and faithful friend and makes one little boy very happy :=)

Fluffy looks great in a tee - and LB looks great in anything! Good thing Fluffy arrived a few months early so she could learn the ropes and be all ready when her lamb with glasses came along. :)

What a fun, fun post. Have a great weekend, Mere!

My Very Dear Meredith~
I am literally choked up as I write this to you. I have scrolled through your most recent posts to see what I have been missing out on while my crazy life has kept me away from blogging lately and I am so very touched by your great big soft heart and warm spirit. I mean that, I really do, from the bottom of my heart and soul.
The way you love your Little Buddy, Max, your family and your trees. I can't even express to you how much you have touched me today {once again}. Consider yourself hugged real tight from me {and that wet spot on your shoulder is a tear from me}.
~Danette

Good job, Fluffy. Everyone needs a Fluffy buddy to do things with. What a lucky little boy to have a Fluffy and what a lucky Fluffy to have a little boy. :)

Hugs,
