Entourage

As a baby, Porgie was indifferent about stuffed animals. As a toddler, she was terrified of stuffed animals. As a preschooler, she is enamored with stuffed animals. Porgie now has a menagerie of stuff animals that she totes around the house.

It all started with her blanket, Night-night...A few weeks before Halloween, our neighbors put up Tigger and Pooh inflatable decorations. Porgie was absolutely fascinated with these figures, hence the reason for her next obsession...
After Porgie started carrying around Tigger (who she calls Tiger), Izzy became jealous. He kept trying to steal her new friend. I hunted around in the closet and found a duck for Izzy to play with. Unfortunately, Porgie took a liking to the duck and started toting him around too...A few weeks ago, I went shopping to find winter coats for the kids. While I was looking at clothes, Porgie was rooting around in a bin of stuffed animals. She came back with a little cat, who she named Ticklebum. Since the kitty only costed $2, we brought her home to play with Tiger and Duck...On Izzy's birthday, he received an adorable blue elephant. I am sure you know where this story is headed...
Things have really gotten out of control with these damned stuffed animals...But she sure is cute cuddling all of her new friends.

I've found the same thing. Replacements don't work. George has two blankies now. Backfired when I tried to come up with a spare that I could put in the wash.

How cute! I can just picture her having a little tea party with all her animals! I used to love to do that when I was little...
