Yes, although she is posing like she is asleep, she really does hold her "chicken" in a mighty grip when she sleeps! It is one of those Pete and Repeat - read VERY obnoxious - toys, but she loves it with all her heart! We let the batteries run down and didn't replace them for a long time. I finally took pity and put new ones in. Chicka's reaction should have been recorded - it was precious. She ran to him with her arms outstretched yelling
in such an endearing way - like a long lost close friend that you haven't seen in ages! OK - so we put up with "chicken", whom by the way really is a parrot - but we can't convince chick-a-dee!
And the most important thing is . . . . . after pretending to sleep in her bed for a picture . . . . .
This is THE FIRST TIME in over a year that Chicka has gone to sleep in her own bed! Without a single peep! Can we hope to hope that tonight will go as well? Or tomorrow?????
