As a mom, I will say my unofficial job duty is that of worrier. Sometimes I go to extremes, and other times I swear I am very laid-back. After reading an article on one woman's inability to get rid of her security pillow until middle school, I wondered if my son will ever lose his attachment to "blue blankie," and if his comfort object was a hindrance in any way. Will my second grader turn into a man going on a big job interview who needs to snuggle blue blankie for luck?
