I don't think my mom ever wore a blanket to pick me up from school.
Today when I went to pick up G the girls were asleep so I asked the secretary to bring G out. They are so kind and this is the usual arrangement. I just have to remember to bring my phone, and make sure it has charge... It was drizzling a little, so I got out of the car and stood there with the umbrella. Then it got cold! So I got our car blanket out and put it around my shoulders.
So there I am in a blanket to pick my son up from school. I joked to the secretary that I had become my mom. But I'm pretty sure my classy mom never wore a blanket when she was picking us up from school. What I mean though is that I have grown up. And the things that children find embarrassing, I find convenient. Luckily G is his father's son and embarrassment is hard to come by.
The blanket in question is the pinnacle of many things I enjoy in life. The fabric was given to me by someone, whom it was given to, who had scavenged it from the dumpster= Extreme Thrift. I use it weekly at our homeschool group. I can tie it in a knot and use it to carry lP in a pinch. Also, it is one layer of sheet material and one layer of flannel. That is my second favorite weight of blanket, the first being duvet.
