This is the word that describes me as I am searching high and low for my child's lost lovie. Why you ask? Well most parents would agree that when it comes to lovies it always happens to be that they fall in love with the one that you got from a baby shower from Aunt Jackie and she got it from a boutique shop she found when she was on vacation in Hawaii and there is no way you can just drive to the store and buy a new one. Even if you could just go and buy a new one it would never look, smell, or feel like what your child had made theirs into.
There is Hope!
Thanks to social media, there are now groups and pages on facebook for posting found and lost lovies! Can you believe that! Seriously how awesome are some people that find a dirty, smelly (looks-like-it-got-ran over-a-couple-times-and-spit-on- lovie) They bring it home with them and post it on facebook! lol
There are also a couple websites that do this same thing, like: http://www.lostmylovey.com/ and http://plushmemories.com/
You can usually find some on eBay as well. Unfortunately lots of eBay sellers know that parents are desperate to replace their child lovie so prices are usually marked sky high.
The only way to avoid this all together is never give your kid a security blanket/ item or give them one that isn't going out of style.. like a kitchen towel .. haha good luck. Like I said earlier its inevitable that your child will find comfort in the most HTF item out there..
