My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

I'm a professional!

Honest, I am!!

Really!!

Funny thing about hospitals: they get cold at night. cold enough to_______. (fill in the blank).

So we nurses will frequently go and grab a blanket out of the oven (or warmer) to wrap up in while we're charting.
I actually forgot I was so wrapped and walked into a patient's room mummied up in my blankie.....didn't realize it till I went to help her get repositioned and it got in my way.

Sigh....once it was in the patient's room it was "dirty" and had to be left in her dirty linen.

That just broke my heart,

As it meant I had to go get a fresh, piping hot one out of the oven.........

Mmmmm, love those warm blankies.
I put the kids blankets in the dryer to warm them up in the winter time. Mom used to put our jeans and socks on the oven door in the morning to heat em up. Those buttons got HOT!
YOW!
hey, just tried to 'follow' your blog, but the button won't click.
