My beautiful daughter has a white hand-crocheted blanket that she is in love with – it’s her “security” blankie. It was made with love byÂ her great-aunt Jana, and Ellie is absolutelyÂ enamored with it.
On mornings when sheÂ hasn’tÂ quiteÂ woken up enough, or when she’s having a “mommy” day, or just when she’s feeling particularly vulnerable, I let her bring her blankie with her to daycareÂ – she always feels better when she knows I’m going to let her take it in the car, andÂ I can tell she feels somehow “safer” away from me when I drop her offÂ .
Tomorrow marks Day One of my father-in-law’s murderer’s court trial…
Do you think Ellie will let me have her blankie for the day?
