I remember that it is taken the summer Anne-Sophie broke and crushed her elbow - right before starting in school for the very first time - at the age of 6.
She fell from a climing frame on a vacation in Skagen, and had to go through an operation. My parents came all the way to look after Emil, so we could be at the hospital with Anne-Sophie.
When my parents saw Anne-Sophie the next day, they brought her the sweet brown teddy bear. He had to have a name, and what was more obvious than the name of the sweet doctor who operated on her elbow? So Peter Helmig is was (and yes, the doctor is the brother of another wellknown Helmig).
This little fellow caught my eyes on the the wall too. Emil wasn't more than 3-4 years old when he sold flowers he had picked in our garden. We knew that his grandparents would pass our house that afternoon, so there he sat, waiting to sell some beautiful flowers. I was standing behind the door, ready to assist him (and look after him...).
Oh, how I love to get lost in the past for a minute or two.....Don't you?
