Magic Blankie

It's just a blanket throw, offwhite in color, nothing special to look at. But it's down filled, and cozy as can be.

Magic Blanket comes with us in the car or minivan on long road trips. It lives on the couch most of the time -- except when one kid or the other takes it for their own. Amigo will wrap up in it on the den floor while he watches college football. La Petite will nab it for her futon when she comes home to visit.

I always 'steal' it back.

I call it Magic Blankie because it is my favorite for naps. Amigo doesn't get the whole nap concept. "Mom, why do you nap? Why don't you just sleep in?" "Well, honey, I'm not a teenager." "Huh?"

Amigo calls it Magic Blankie because it makes him feel better when he's sick.

Whatever the reason, this ordinary-looking blanket is a keeper. Who says toddlers are the only ones with blankets? Not me. In fact, as soon as I put the turkey in the oven, I'm going to curl up with the newspaper, a cup of coffee, and Magic Blankie.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. May the magic be not just in your blankies, but also in your hearts.

I have one, too. Mine is called "Mommy's Favorite Blankie." I use it for napping, for extra warmth anytime, and for sick children.
