Last night the bears were enjoying some post dinner coffee and strawberries when they heard a knock at the front door (a collective sinking feeling overwhelmed the bears).
"Well hello there daughter," said Teddy's mother Beatrice.
Teddy was in shock to see her mother in the fur, so to speak. Teddy was paralyzed with fear. Just the sound of her voice brought back a flood of bad feelings about poor grades, chubby wisecracks (Teddy used to be plump) and her inadequate cooking skills. "Come on in," Teddy said meekly.
After Beatrice settled in with her coffee, Teddy collected herself. "Wow, she's really here," Teddy kept thinking, but she still managed to smile.
