Don't miss the beautiful essay by Heather Clay in the February issues of Parenting Early Years and Parenting School Years:
Read Objects of Affection (http://www.parenting.com/article/Mom/Relationships/Objects-of-Affection).
When her daughter loses her lovey, simply named Green Pillow, Heather realizes how much she misses it too.

My kids are SUPER attached to their loveys. My oldest's lovey is a clothe diaper/spit clothe, he has about 30 of them and always has to have 1 with im. My youngest's lovey is a Dallas Cowboys T-shirt that I used to wear. He drags it through the snow, sleeps with it, wraps his stuffed animals in it. He always has it with him and I have to steal it when he's not looking just to wash it.

My oldest son's lovey was his stuffed Winnie the Pooh doll. I can sympathize with Heather's story about losing Green Pillow because we once lost Pooh Bear and my son was inconsolable. I had to make up an elaborate story about how Pooh went on vacation to visit his family and all the adventures he had while he was gone. Meanwhile, I was frantically phoning the hotel we had recently stayed in where I was pretty sure we had left Pooh Bear when we checked out. We did find him and the hotel mailed him home, whereupon I told my son he finally came back from vacation! Needless to say, I always double and triple check hotel rooms now before we check out!
