My Baby!

I'm sure you're all familiar with the old Bugs Bunny cartoon, "Apes of Wrath," where the stork mistakenly delivers Bugs to an ape family. The Mama ape just LOVES Bugs and calls him, "My Baby!" in a squeaky voice while the Daddy ape lurches about beating his chest at Bugs in anger. Well, that scene is a lot like our house on most days. It's quite hysterical, even without Bugs Bunny there to move the plot along, and dang do I look good in a baby bonnet.

So, since I am Woman's baby, she gives me things you would give a baby. For example, Woman's Mom crocheted her this blanket one year for Christmas.

If you enlarge that photo, not only will you get a glimpse into Woman's childhood living room, but also see that on that Christmas day in 1997, it was -4 degrees with the wind chill factor. Yikes! Ohio is a cold hard place.

Guess who owns the handmade Mom blanket now? It's me!

I lay on it all day while I work. It's my baby blanket, because I'm Her Baby!! Ian is leaping around the room beating his chest right now. LOL! In case you're concerned about this blanket, don't be - I take very good care of it.

    Well, we are mom's other babies, so it is good you have the blanket. As long as Ian doesn't run around the house going "kill the wabbit" we think woman is safe.
