Blankies Make Owies Better


Straight from the mouth of a 3 year old; “Blankies Make Owies Better”. Isn’t that the truth? Little Girl got whacked in the forehead with a baseball bat this afternoon – the act of a brother, of course. I believe it was an accident, and brother does feel badly. It’s so sad to see our little ones hurt. My wise little girl asked for her blankie, and after a bit of snuggling and rubbing her face, with her blanket, she said “rubbing owies with blankies makes them smaller.” From the mouths of babes! When I am hurt or feeling sad, it absolutely feels great to curl up with a soft blanket. Are you a blanket snuggler, when the mood strikes?
