Are your kids stuffed animal junkies?! Nolan played on his own a lot, he’s a naturally independent kid. He preferred to hang out by himself when he was preschool age. We told him he should try and make some friends. Some time after that, he received a stuffed animal, a fox, and named it Friend. He said to me, “Now I have a friend, and I don’t have to play with anybody.” We were so flabbergasted we didn’t know what to say! Hahah!
