The pink & tiger print soft as a puppy. Little corners that I would suck on. There was little to no stuffing in it. Lala & Lovie are special lovies that formed my childhood. My mom gifted Lovie to me when I was around three, & my best friends gave me a matching Lala with her when I was 5. I brought these lovies everywhere: to the store, to the pool, & to every sleepover. I couldn’t sleep without them. One winter morning, I was getting ready to leave for my 4th grade outdoor trip. Packs were packed, & I was ready to go, but little did I know I forgot Lala & Lovie. When I got to school I started to get nervous, so I went to my bag to grab my lovies, but I couldn’t find them. I burst into tears knowing that I would not be able to sleep that night without them. Everyone watched me sob into my hands. I had never gone one night without them. I ran away to my mom’s classroom across the hall. The bus was getting packed up with the bags, & the students were loading the busses, but I refused to go into the bus until I got my lovies. My teachers tried to convince me to go, but I refused. My best friend came out of the bus & gave me one of her lovies to make me feel better. The comfort of having a lovie in my hands made me know that I would be okay, & having Dillen made me happier, & so I stopped crying. I walked into the bus knowing I would be able to sleep that night. Four years later, I still have my Lovies, but I don’t need them to sleep.
