Did you have a favorite blanket or other security object when you were young? Maybe you had a stuffed Tigger that you wouldn't leave home with. Or did you have a favorite pillow? Some kids have some of the strangest things they latch on to but to them it's normal and important. smilewinkgrin And you don't dare lose it either. Ever remember waiting by the washer and dryer for your favorite blanket?

The one thing I had was a blanket I dragged around. I only have fleeting memories of it but mom and dad told me it was one of the old wool army blanket circa WWII. Those were so heavy and nasty but it was mine and I swiped it fair and square from dad about the time I was toddling. The only way they could stop me from dragging it everywhere was to start cutting it into smaller and smaller pieces until I finally gave it up. tongue

What was your 'security blanket' when you were young?

I also had a blanket that I carried with me everywhere.  I remember it was white and had rabbits and other animals on it but I don't really remember the other animals, just the rabbits for some reason.  My Mother still has this blanket tucked away.  It's very thin now and has some holes in it.

Mine was also a "bankie"  blanket with silky material all around the edges.  I do remember on the 4th of July one year when the sparkler I was holding scared me.  I flung it away and it ended up right on my bankie and burned a big hole in the middle.  horror of horrors, how could that ever happen.  My mom sewed around the ragged edges after she trimmed the burn off with that zig zag stitch that I don't even know if sewing machines even do anymore.  It was as good as new in my eyes

I, too, had a blanky that I carried around for the first 4-5 years of my life. It had a satin binding around the edges that I used to rub between my thumb and finger every night to get to sleep.

Ah, if only sleep would come so easily these days. :-)

When I was a kid, I could not go to bed at night without a teddy bear that my pastor had prayed over. I had a lot of nightmares as a kid, and I called this bear my No Fear Teddy. I still have this bear. I gave it to my son. But when I slept with this bear, I didn't have nightmares. I also loved my baby blanket.

I had a blanket too, and my mom said they had to pry it from my hands to wash it. Can't say I actually remember this, though. What I do remember is that I had probably 2 dozen stuffed animals around me in bed, and whoever was tucking me in had to say goodnight to every single one by name. Funny, I probably hadn't thought of that in 40 years! Thanks for the great memories, Chutz!!
