A jitto story...
I have often been asked about the name JittoBearCo. What does it mean? Where'd you come up with a strange name like that?
To understand JittoBearCo, let me tell you a little (jitto) story.
In 2007, we welcomed a beautiful baby boy to our family - Jake, or Hurricane Jake as he would affectionately come to be known. He was gifted with the talent of leveling a room in seven seconds flat.
(I've since come to understand that all little boys have this ability, and even some little girls too.)
He also has a cheeky little partner in crime - a ratty old teddy bear that came home from the hospital with him.
When Jake was about two years old, I asked him one day what his teddy's name was. He gave me a look that I will never forget. It was exasperation and disbelief all rolled into one. Along with that look, he replied, "Mom, he doesn't have a name. He's just a jitto bear."
At the time, he hadn't yet mastered the pronunciation of his L's, but the name stuck.
JittoBear is a perfect complement to Jake, and just as much a member of our family. He's always there when you need him, and even sometimes when you don't. He has a wonderful way of popping up unexpectedly, especially when you need a smile. He's also appeared in EVERY family photo (although I don't mind, since he does tend to sit much better than his brother).
JittoBear is a reminder of all those precious memories of Jake growing up - bike rides, boo boos, blanket forts.... he's been there for it all. He is happiness incarnate, and I have learned so very much from his wise ways.
In the business of preserving memories... is there any better inspiration?
