(Age 7, as dictated to his mom): Blankie is special. My grandma, Mama Lai, gave him to me when I was little. I like to be with Blankie when I’m sad because he makes me feel cozy and happier. Mamma Lai gave me a back up Blankie but I don’t like it as much. Blank has been to Mexico, Hawaii, Michigan, Beaver Island, Oregon, and California with me. He travels in my backpack. I’m going to put him in a keepsake box which is why I can’t give him to you.
