Charlie T. Right

Charlie T. Right is our primary’s CTR bear. He visits a new child each week to help them remember to choose the right. You can’t tell from this picture, but he has a big, green shield on his tummy that says CTR on it.

Rachel and Charlie

This week was Rachel’s turn with Charlie. She got to write in Charlie’s journal about what she did with him this week. Here is what she wrote:

All About Me:

Name: Rachel Anneliese Heiss

I am: 23 months old.

Some of my favorite foods are: freezies, fruit, yogurt, rice, macaroni, ice cream, cereal, apples, and pizza.

My hobbies include: swimming, coloring, playing games, reading, cooking, and yoga.

My favorite place to go: church and outside.

My CTR moment: I tried very hard to remember to say sorry when I hurt other people. I also worked at staying reverent during prayer time.

Charlie came to sit with me during primary because I was sad. He helped me to be happy until Mommy could pick me up. Then he came home with me. I call him “My Charlie,” which Mommy thinks might turn into a problem. Charlie did everything with me today.

Charlie helps me remember to say sorry when I forget to choose the right. He helps me remember to be reverent for prayers. Today I hurt my toe. Charlie helped me be brave while Mommy washed it and put a band aid on it. Then we got to watch a show about sharing. I asked Charlie to kiss my toe better, and he did. I’m happy Charlie is with me.

I loved having Charlie stay with me. I will miss him very much. I hope the next child to have him will enjoy him as much as I did!

Rachel really did everything she could with Charlie. If Charlie didn’t go somewhere or do something with us, it was because we forced Rachel to leave him at home.

Charlie sat at the dinner table with us, slept in Rachel’s bed (wearing pyjamas), talked with Rachel’s grandparents on Skype, came on family walks with us, helped Rachel play, helped bake a cake. Basically everything.

He didn’t get to go to the doctor’s office or the swimming pool with us, but Rachel told him about it when we got home. As soon as we got home.

He’s kind of become her second half and it will probably break her heart terribly to have to give him away in primary. But at least she’ll be good during sacrament meeting…because she’ll get to hold Charlie.

Rachel wants to type something, too:
