Well, it took nearly three years, but LO has finally found a comfort object that he wants clutched in his hands as he falls asleep.
Now, despite the fact that LO had all of these sweet and soft loveys to choose from:
|Mooford, the playtime dress up pal|
|The nimble mountain goat|
|Frank, the Creature From the Black Lagoon|
That, my friends, is a section of J's new motorcycle chain. LO was helping J to install said chain, which needed to be shortened, so J gave LO the extra section.
LO has been so enamored of his new toy that he leaves it on his night stand, and insists on holding it as he falls asleep each night (meaning a certain unnamed member of this household has to pry it out of the young man's sleepy and clenched hands once he drops off each night in order to be sure the ridiculous comfort object does not hurt him while he sleeps).
J, of course, could not be more pleased.
The motorcycle chain could not be reached for a comment.
