Grandma slam dunk alert!

We received another box from Grandma the other day. This grandma, my mom, is famous for some odd packages. She’ll be the first to admit it. I think we can both admit that sometimes the stuff can fall into a “misinformed impulse buy” category…transistor radios with black nylon lanyards and travel Yahtzee. Here’s a typical pre-package arrival call:

“Hey Man, it’s Mom.”


“I just put another package in the mail to you. It’s a little bit of everything, some things for you, some things for the girls.”

“Cool, I can’t wait!”

“Well, I don’t know. It may be weird. I don’t know what I was thinking. Some of it may just be dumb.”

“Mom, stop. I’m sure we’ll love it.”

“Well, I thought some of it was cool, but what you don’t like you can just give away.”



Grandma has sent some amazing things. And, she never fails with quilts. I had to post her latest. She sent a vest, jacket and hat for Avery. They are made of what is without question the most decadent fleece I have ever touched. The brand is called i play baby wear . If you have a baby, know someone with a baby, or think you might one day come into contact with a baby I urge you to go now and buy something from their Winter Wear line. It is simply amazing!

Avery loves it. The quilt behind her is another Grandma slam dunk. It is a genuine, make-you-feel-like-a-rich-person quilt from Sundance, or as I sometimes call it, the catalog from which I would buy anything but can afford nothing. Thanks Mamalou.
