Mr and Mrs Fox

Mr. and Mrs. Fox
There once were two foxes named Mr. and Mrs.
They had a good life full of kisses and stitches
Sadly, they knew that the time would soon come
And Mommy would say "Try not to be glum,
But the day has come where there are no more fixes"
This lovely little pair of foxes were made by Kathryn for Katie's first birthday almost four years ago. She made them without stuffing so that they would easily fit in my suitcase to take home on the airplane. They were the perfect accessory for Katie's Woodland themed bedroom in Cold Lake. They have been loved to the point of stuffed animal abuse and so have spent half of their lives on a shelf waiting to be repaired. Over and over and over and over again. Since commencing KonMari, these little guys have been the hardest thing to part with. They still bring much joy, but I'm afraid that they are now beyond repair. Instead of just telling them how much joy they have brought to our house, I thought that it would be fitting to tell the world instead <3
P.S. I'm sorry if my limerick isn't great
