I recently found this blanket at the thrift store.
It’s huge, soft and perfect. I think it might be brand-new.
With 4 boys, they’re all fighting over who gets to use it, especially since it’s been so cold. The nighttime lows have been in the 30’s for the last few weeks.
In our home, we have two heaters. One has gone out and we’re waiting to purchase a new unit, something I'm saving for with my eBay/Craig's List sales. Half the house is warm and toasty while the other side is freezing at night, so all 4 boys’ are in one giant California King bed.
The princess is sleeping in a port-a-crib in the same room as the counselor and I.
My husband keeps reminding me
is only sleeping in our room until we get the unit replaced, but between you and me, I really love having her so close. It's like sleeping with an angel nearby. Plus, I know Reef isn't in any hurry to get back to his room on the other side of the house. He loves sleeping with his big brothers. Eden
I don’t know what I’ll do when the heater is fixed because I really like the new sleeping arrangement. If you know me, I’ll get my way.
When I spread the boy’s wolf blanket out on the bed, I noticed a signature.
Of course, being an eBay junkie, I had to look it up on-line.
The painting on the blanket is called “Indigo” by Dave Merrick.
I didn’t find any other blankets, but the art work on canvas or print all sell well on eBay.
So, what did I do?
I warned the boys!
“Don’t get too comfortable with the wolf blanket, I’m probably going to be selling it on eBay.”
“Mom, please let us keep it,” they reply.
