The ups and downs, the oohs and aahs of life as a single mom to two girls...

As Seen on TV
Doodle and Tootle love infomercials. They started begging for the Snugg*ie a few months ago, and I finally succumbed and bought two of the one size fits all blankets with sleeves for our household. They arrived yesterday and tonight both girls curled up on the sofa to read, enveloped in blue synthetic fleece. This item appears to be all the rage: The Today Show did a piece on the Snugg*ie this morning and the hosts all wore them in the studio. Then a coworker brought one into what has been our rather chilly office. We made our 6 foot 5 inch colleague try it on, and it fit him perfectly (even if he looked like a monk), so you can imagine how huge these are on the girls. I won't allow them to walk in them; they would definitely get tangled in the extra fabric and fall. I haven't tried the Snugg*ie yet; Nana loves it. I must be strong and hold out against the Big City Slid*er that they all covet.
