None of my children have had an unusual attachment to conventional soothers. This is now changing. Benton has formed an attachment, however there are no binkies, blankies or loveys for him. What he does love are screwdrivers and tools - especially screwdrivers.
He walks around the house with one all the time. Lately he takes it with him wherever we go. He even has been known to take it to bed with him. His first words in the morning are "Where is my screwdriver?" or "Can I watch Bob da Builder?"
Tonight he brought his toolbox to the dinner table setting it beside his seat. It holds a myriad of toy tools as well as a few real screwdrivers. Ask him for a phillips and you may be surprised to get what you need.
