Security Objects

***I miss you guys over at my other blog/website!!! My comment section is missing some of my favorite commentors with all their writing expertise and advice! If you get a moment, try to visit!***


Everyone, this is Ruffy. Poor lonely puppy who got left on the swing during the Forth of July celebration. I love this puppy. He does not belong to me however, he belongs, everlastingly adored, to my youngest son.

I can't remember having a stuffed animal that I worshiped like my son does this puppy, but I did have a blanky. Isn't it amazing how children get attached to such objects. This puppy was originally bought for my daughter while I was pregnant for my middle son, neither of them paid it any attention. But when the youngest grabbed it for the first time, they became eternally bonded. These objects of security go everywhere with my children. My daughter doesn't really have one anymore (considering she is eight) but she has gone through a couple very important blankets and does have a sweet spot for a few of her stuffed animals. My middle son adopted a blanket my sister made for my daughter. It looks a mess now, but he refuses to let it go. And my youngest walks around with Big Ruffy and Baby Ruffy and has laid claim on about 3 or 4 blankets. I love it!

Do your children have a "Ruffy" or "Blanky"? Did you?

Brogan's not really attached to anything right now except his Nuk!

My daughter (age 7) still has a lovey she can't do without: Dirty Baby (aptly named). Boy, I'd be pulling my hair out if we ever lost DB....

Nuks can be evil...but luckily my kids had mostly given them up before they were anywhere from 6 mo to 2 yrs

my girls weren't ever really attached to anything...but Logan loves his blanket! I had a 'tickle' when i was a little girl.

I don't think I did, but all my kids have blankies. :-)

I totally forgot you had another site. Whoops!

My 5 y.o. son put his favorite stuffed animal into the give-away pile last week. I promptly pulled it out and said "No, this one's your favorite. You can't ever get rid of it." He looked at me strangely and then shrugged, like, what's-your-problem-lady!
