How many lovies does one girl need?
Evidently, at our house, the answer is 7.
There used to just be three.
And two of them were small.
Bubbie (the white bear), Blankie (the ratty yellow blanket), and Lovie (one of those satin-y little square things).
But somehow, we are up to 7.
Bubbie, Blankie, Lovie, Magic (the Web-kinz tiger), Josephina (the American Girl), and the AU tiger pillow are all in bed with her every night.
Each of them is special in his/her own way.
And each of them has a very specific place each night.
And it never changes.
That's only 6.
Right you are!
I had to draw the line somewhere.
When she wanted to sleep with the horse, I had to say "NO WAY!"
So now, Penny (I think...or is it Spotty now?...or was it Spotty and got changed to Penny? I can't remember!) stands guard over everyone at night.
Now, am I the only one with a child who sleeps with a large number of lovie/security type items? What does your child sleep with?
