Creature Comforts

I gave this book to Mary Fowler for Christmas and she hasn't shown much interest in it until tonight. She has a security object she is mostly embarrassed of and I wanted her to see that it is normal for people to have something (sometimes silly) that comforts them. She loved hearing the different stories about people and their comfort item.

I wanted to remember this little moment:

"Mary Fowler, what is your security object? Is it your _______?"
"No... YOU are my security object, mommy. Sometimes when I'm away and you aren't with me, it just hurts me inside. And, anyway, objects can be replaced but people are the most important."
So true!
