James "lost" Blankie a few days ago. We found him but haven't told James. We have made the best parental decision to keep Blankie away. He is a disgusting, stringy, tiny heap of torn fabric. James had been putting Blankie in his mouth lately, and even though I kept telling him to stop I'd find him sucking on Blankie. Ick.
So lately Curious George has been his companion at bedtime. Fine by us!
It hasn't been a big deal for James. Maybe 6 1/2 is a magical time.
