All of a sudden this weekend my daughter formed an attachment to her blanket and her bear "Haha" (he laughs when you press his foot, she named him Haha lol I love that name!). She refuses to go ANYWHERE without them. She threw a fit when we left the house without her blanket tonight. She had Haha, but not her blanket, and SCREAMED for it. I explained to her that the blanket is for bedtime only, and I refuse to budge on that one. She can bring Haha everywhere, but not her bedsheets.
Anyways. Where is this sudden attachment coming from? Nothing has changed, no new job, no new routine, everything is business as usual. Any ideas? She's never had a lovey before, so I'm not sure how to deal with having one! lol
BTW She'll be 2 in two weeks.

My son started doing that around that age. He has a bear, a puppy and now a mouse (except it's really a cat, but he named it mouse) that he can't live without. It started with the bear and now the collection is growing. It's nice that he's got a couple so if one gets misplaced (puppy just spent a few days in the kitchen cabinet) there are back ups. He also collects blankets and insists he sleeps with all of them. I guess it's just a 2 year old thing.

Is there any way not to pass on my fear of dentists to my 2 yr old?
