I almost passed out when I learned this, but Dave had a Kia too! For those of you who don’t know, Kia is my dear lovey, security blanket, whatever you want to call her that I’ve had for as long as I can remember. She still sits next to my bed and she makes me feel better when things are hard. Officially, she’s a Sqeak-A-Boo, a rattley, squeaky toy that was apparently very popular in the 70’s. Anyway, Sue just sent us Dave’s old Kia to give to Zekey. I don’t think Dave loved his quite enough. And Zekey doesn’t seem interested. I guess I’m the only one who really appreciates how wonderful she is.

PS: I read an article once about adults and their security blankets and now, of course, I can’t find it. But I swear I’m not the only one.

    You KNOW how I feel about my “banky”. Jordan is obsessed with his too and we play with it the exact same way. It is freaky. We lay in bed together and each play with our respective “banky’s”. Yes, I am 31. Yes I have 2 kids. I don’t care.

    I believe that having an attachment to a favorite blanket or toy shows that you are a loving person. My “teddy” is sitting in our basement, old, ratty, fairly furless, one-eyed, and very, very dusty. Somehow, even though I’m almost twice your age, I just can’t throw him out. So don’t be embarrassed; it’s a good thing.
