I have been wondering if I am the only one that does this, but does anyone else only use certain stuffed animals for AB stuff? I only use my snow tiger plushie that I got at the beginning of last year. I have tried to hug any of my other stuffed animals while sucking my thumb or pacifier, but it just doesn't feel right. I think it has to do with the fact that I didn't have them when I was a baby or when I was in diapers. I don't have that kind of connection with them. They have grown up with me so to speak. Like my Pikachu plushie I got for Christmas 1999. He does mean a lot to me, but if I'm sleeping with my pacifier and I grab him to sleep with. I feel weird and need to take pacifier out of my mouth. If I get out an older plushie like my Chomper plushie from The Land Before Time, I feel more of that connection because I slept with him a lot before getting my Pikachu and I was still in diapers when I was sleeping with him.
Am I the only one who is like this? Does this make sense?
