My niece is here visiting all the way from Norway. This made me think about taking out “fishy.”

Shortly after I adopted Cino, my niece made this fish for her and sent it in the mail all the way from Norway. Such a sweet gift!

I named it “fishy”, but find myself always saying to Cino…do you want to play with “fishy wishy?” I’m not sure why this is, but everything winds up with a “y” at the end, or a word added on that rhymes beginning in a “w”, or both. Her favorite mouse toy has become “mousey wousey.” Her felt puzzle is now “puzzle wuzzle” and her owl toy is of course “owly wowly.

Am I the only one in this silliness?

Anyway “fishy” only gets taken out every once and a while for “supervised playtime.” It just means so much to me, I hate to see it get ruined.



Cino really does enjoy her time with “fishy!”

Hope you are having a fabulous day!

Prayers would be appreciated for me & my family. Tomorrow is my sister’s funeral. (By the way, the niece visiting is not the daughter of the sister that passed away. Her visit was planned before this tragedy happened)

    Cino loves Fishy Wishy, and of course, she cannot possibly associate a wonderful new toy with her Mum’s deceased sister (I was guessing your visiting niece could be your departed sister’s daughter).

    I will pray for your serenity and healing, friend LeeAnn, and for comforting bonds and shared love throughout your family during such a difficult time. Loss is so hard! It can even challenge our trust in God. Take heart; “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5)

    Dayspring will come in its perfect time.

      Your comment made me realize I should have made it clear that the niece visiting is not the daughter of the sister that passed away. I added another sentence to the end of the post explaining that. Thanks! Also, thanks for your kind words! That is the perfect verse!

        I could only know it was a possibility, but I could only speculate as to the relationship.
        Your clarification is perfect.

        Take care! May your day tomorrow be very specially blessed.

    Having lost my older sister (quite a few years ago now), you have my prayers and thoughts. While I still miss her, there are many happy memories which I regularly dwell on… and sincerely hope that you can/will do the same with your sister. Keep smiling! πŸ™‚

    No, you’re not alone in this. When my niece was little, she used to call my dad “Propst Wopsy”, my brother “Daddy Waddy”, etc., and I picked up on it. Even some 15 years later, I still do it with the dogs’ names at times.
