Does Mommy Love It is hosting their first group writing project. The topic for this month is a favorite product our family can't live without.
If I weren't confident in my abilities as a mother, I would feel threatened by you. You spend uninterrupted hours with our children while they dream. A simple touch from you provides them with comfort and warmth. My children allow you to tame their raging tantrums and cuddle with them as they read their favorite books. You are definitely something our family couldn't live without. You are their blanket, blankie, or beck, depending on which child is asking for you.
Mind you, not just any blanket will do, it has to be a Baby Morgan Thermal Blanket created by the J.E. Morgan Knitting Mills. A blanket that is so soft - bound with two inches of nylon satin. This blanket was once widely available at our local JC Penneys in a variety of colors. In 2003, the J.E. Morgan Knitting Mills closed down causing a little panic attack for this mommy!
Morgan blankets are now a staple for our family. All of our children have had one and loved them dearly. The Baby Morgan blanket production was sold to Bright Future. It has been difficult to find them in our JC Penney. I stalk eBay and patiently wait for the right color to become available. Another baby is on the way so I am on the hunt once again . . . . this time for a green one!
Recently, I found this website that carries the original Baby Morgan Blanket. They'll even monogram it for you. The original is more expensive than the Bright Future one, but I can truly say these blankets last forever and can be washed over and over again.
One word of advice . . . if you decide to purchase one of these wonderful blankets stock up so you can rotate them and always have one on hand!
