You all know by now that my Baby Groot bobblehead is an intrepid traveler. Not only does he get up to mischief around my house during the day, but he’s been to both Austin, TX, and Joshua Tree National Park. So I was sad (but I can’t say I was surprised) when I accidentally brushed Baby Groot the wrong way, and his little head toppled off his little body.
