I have a memory box that the hospital gave me when Isaac and Avery were born. I have all sorts of things in the box. I have an outfit that I first put on Isaac in after his bath, thier u/s pics, my first BFP, A peice of the ribbon from thier casket flowers, a rubbing stone identical to one that is in thier casket with them, thier hand and foot prints, ext. That box means more to me than anything. It is all that I have of our boys.

I have kept it in our living room along with a teddy bear that my sister gave me for them. I just wasn't ready to put it away. I like knowing where the box is, and I like to seeing it everyday.

Well, today DH came home for lunch, and our dogs had gotten the box out and chewed on it. I haven't stopped crying since I got home and Travis showed me the box. Luckily they only chewed the box itself. Nothing inside the box was chewed on. It just pisses me off, and more than anything makes me sad to have the box and the stuff inside messed with. I mean, they could have chewed on anything else, and I might have been upset for a minute or so, but - There is no replacing those items.......

Now I have to put the box up and away in our bedroom so that it doesn't happen again, and that sucks. I'm not ready to put it away. I'm not sure if I am even mad right now....I just feel ........deflated......

Oh honey, that just makes me want to cry!! I totally get how you feel. The memory box I got for Cora isn't anything especially pretty or anything, but I haven't replaced it because it's her box...kwim? I'd be devastated.

I'm SO GLAD that the things inside weren't chewed on...but it makes me so sad about the box! Is there someplace up higher you can put it so the dogs can't get it?

I remember how I felt when I had to put Cora's things away because Erin could reach them, and I didn't want her breaking anything. I hope you can find something that makes you feel better about it.

again.

Im sorry sweety, I can really see how that would be hard to deal with. I sure hope you can find a higher place like Britt suggest. I have the same thing, the box was one I picked out for him while I was still pregnant, a memory box. And well its very special and would hurt me as well..Im SO SO glad the things inside are safe and okay, because those are the most most important. We are here for you honey

Oh Sam, I'm so sorry they chewed the box. I'm glad they didn't hurt anything inside of it though. I hope you can find a place to put it that you will still see everyday.

Oh sam I'm sorry to hear that the pups did that

Like Britt said...is there some place up higher you could maybe put it? Like get a special shelving unit made or something?

There really isn't a good place in the living room, but I did find a nice HIGH spot in our bedroom last night. It's going to sit on top of DH's dresser, and I can see it everyday when I wake-up and when I go to sleep.

The boy's box had sat in the same place since about mid-may last year, and it was never once touched by our dogs- I don't know why they got into it yesterday.......but, it's hard to blame them, they didn't know that the box was special, and I did leave it where they had access to it. BUT - yesterday they were lucky I was not the one to find them chewing on it. I'm pretty sure I would have scooted them out our door and not let them back in!! (but they probably would have just sat on the porch anyway! )
