bug in a rug

It's a bit of a blustery day today.

So after I buckled him into the stroller for our daily take-a-nap walk, I looked at his short shirt sleeves and bare feet (he calls them "berry feet") and decided I needed to grab a blanket.

Now the problem with a blanket on a stroller, as some of you been-there-done-that moms will agree, is that the blanket will fall out or will be thrown out at some point of the trip. And it will get run over by the stroller.

I thought about this on my way to grab said blanket and I was struck with a brilliant idea....

a pillow sham.



His feet tuck nicely into the bottom flap and the top flap can be pulled up like a blanket. It's like a tiny sleeping bag but better.

Just look at that...

My little bug in a rug.

p.s. 3 posts in one day? What can I say? I'm on a roll.

And sometimes Mother invents something out of necessity. A pint-size sleeping bag.
