Casey Anthony Continues

So I just spent the last hour or so reading threads relating to Casey Anthony. I started out looking for information regarding the possible purchase of two cross necklaces from JC Penny. I had very little luck finding any credible information about that. I did, however, read something else that peaked my interest. Caylee’s “Mama” doll. I had always just read over the fact that it was found in the abandoned car and not given it much more thought. I had never really considered the fact that it has been said that Caylee never went anywhere without “Mama.”

My child’s security posession is his pacifier. I NEVER leave the house without it….even though Husband and I are trying o phase it out. I travel with it because, at any time, he might get freaked out and need it. I know this is very different from a blanket or a doll -but it is the closest thing I, personally, can make a comparison with. I just know that, in a stressful situation, my son cries for his “Paapeee” and he will suck like crazy -and close his eyes- until he feels calm. And now- not only does he need his Paaapeee —-I need it! He loves that thing and my heart can’t bear to see him cry for it when he feels stressed out.

So that brings to my head the thought -why would any mother let their child go to -say- the baby sitters (Zany) without their comfort object? And then, since we know that Caylee is not with the babysitter -what kind of cruel hearted mother would leave the child’s comfort object in an abandoned car —the kind that knew that the child would not need the object!!! And– she couldn;t have loved Caylee -if she didn;t even bury the doll with the child. Cruel! (It goes without saying that she obviously didn’t care for the child since she killed her.)

Just a rambling vent. Sorry.

ADDITION: Okay- I have a better example: I babysat a little girl for four years while I was in college. She had a doll she called “Baby.” That doll was disgusting. It smelled like spit and sweat. Her Mother washed it regularly (while the little girl was asleep) but it really didn’t help. I think the stinch was embedded into the fiber. Anyway, the little girl took “Baby” Everywhere. If we forgot “Baby” when we left the house -we had to go back and get her- for the little girl’s comfort and for my own sanity. She would cry and never stop asking for the doll. We (her Mom and I) tried to substitue “Baby” for a doll that we called “Baby.” The little girl said that the new doll didn’t smell right. She declared it an imposter and called it “Baby Two.” She hid “Baby Two” in her room and repeatedly said that she didn;t like her.

Just thinking back- this child was not mine (although I was at there house enough to consider her mine and love her dearly) and I am not mean enough to purposely leave “Baby.” On top of that -it was wearing on the nerves to have to hear her crying for “Baby.”
