My Aria and her “buddy”


Aria almost didn’t acquire her “buddy”. Seeing as she had five already, her Nonna (John’s mum) wondered if she needed it. But it was so soft and cuddly that when we set out for India over a year ago, we determined to squeeze it into our luggage. Aria is undoubtedly glad we did.

Always has to have her “buddy” with her!

Aria’s buddy is a pink-and-white check fleece blanket. It is called buddy, not because John or I dubbed it that, but because that is how Aria pronounces “blanket”. But “buddy” is quite fitting as she practically considers this soft blanket her best friend. She likes to take it with her whenever she leaves the house and it is quite important for her to hold as she drifts off to sleep, thumb in mouth and fingers on that same hand clutching the blanket close to her face.
I don’t know when she first began to form the attachment to this particular blanket. She likes her other blankets as well and doesn’t really like to share them, but buddy is in a class of its own. I wonder if it happened as we left India: perhaps Aria needed an extra bit of security and this blanket that Mummy always gave her to sleep with seemed ideal. I didn’t single out this blanket for her naps and night-time sleeps for any other reason other than it was soft, washed easily, and dried on the clothes line outside super fast. Hence, the blanket.

I don’t remember being attached to any particular thing as a child. Sure, my baby doll went many places with me and I lovingly dressed and cared for her. But I don’t think she was a comfort-thing. But then, I didn’t have the same instability of moving a lot as a child like Aria has had. So I’m glad she has this item of comfort. As long as she isn’t still dragging it around when she starts going to school!:-)

    Yeah, it’s true. She loves that thing… she may have many blankets, but she’ll always only have one “buddy”.
