to be repulsed by the filthy comforter bear blanky thing that ds's 3.5 year old playdate carries everywhere?

I know I am being horrible and she is only 3.5. But it is really disgustingly filthy and she keeps leaving it everywhere.
Is it a girl thing? None of mine ever had one.

my dd1 had a bunny she used to take everywhere we called it smelly bunny. she loved this this and would cry beyond belief if it wasnt in her arms. i used to have to get up in the middle of the night wash it and dry it and get it back in her arms before she woke up and realise it was gone. She still has it but thankfully doesnt follow her everywhere she goes well she is almost 11 now! but it did stink and it was gross but she adored it!

the thing with washing favourite toys/blankets etc is that not only does it wash the dirt/germs/random grub away but it also washes away the smell. For DD the smell of her favourite thing (a tiny blue beanie hippo toy) is one of the most important things about him. He smells familiar and is a comfort to her.

I used to CM a little girl between the age of 3 -6. She had a bath towel that she used to stick part of in her mouth and drag the rest along with her. I used to shudder when i had to touch it, it was wet and manky. She used to take it school, and would stand in the line with it hanging from her mouth.
