Once upon a time, in a land not very far away (um, our house), a brown paper package tied up with string arrived on our doorstep. Inside was the most beautiful handmade blanket in the shape of a tiger! We had heard great things about these blankets but there was one thing everyone failed to mention-tiger blankets are always hungry.
I placed the lovely blanket over the edge of Smith's crib while he rested on our bed because we both knew his crib was hardly ever used for sleeping and was more of a symbolic gesture. It wasn't long before Smith got the funniest feeling he was being watched. I told him it was probably nothing and to go back to sleep.
The tiger blanket took advantage of his position downwind and quietly crept up on the unsuspecting baby.
Before Smith knew it the tiger blanket had pounced and was getting into position to swallow him whole.
That's when the tiger blanket realized he was in trouble. For noone had bothered to mention to him that babies are always hungry, too.
P.S. Roxy Marj Design so generously sent this incredible blanket to Smith despite Ruby's attempts to add it to her top bunk decor. I've had it pinned ever since I knew we were pregnant with our mystery gender baby so it was such a lovely surprise. I can now say if you've ever been on the fence about purchasing it (or adding it to your registry), you won't be disappointed. It's such a playful addition to their space but it's also incredibly well made and soft. I know it'll be a favorite over here for many years.
