Duncan Trying His Best to Rip Open the Package
Yesterday I was surprised to find a package waiting for me from my good friend, Beth. According to Justin, Beth had mentioned sending a little "sumpin' sumpin'" in a comment on a post. "Did she say what it was?" I asked. "Nope." I opened the outer box (filled with those awful styrofoam peanuts...agh!) to find an inner box wrapped in Nickelodeon characters paper. Naturally, Duncan thought it was for him.
Mommy Stepping in to Help
I told him, "The package clearly has Mommy's name on it!" He gave me his best pre-teen "Whatever" look, and ripped away. I helped him along, and made sure his dirty little boy hands were several feet away before I actually reached into the box. Because I had an idea that my talented knitting buddy had been working on something special.
Hedgie Checking Out the Blankie
And I was right. Beth made this beautiful yellow blankie for little nipper 3! The little Hedgie was also one of her creations made especially for Duncan.
Thanks, Beth! It's gorgeous.
