Grandma’s Pants

IMG_0266

Isn’t it amazing how small things can hold great comfort?

Today I am home with my youngest. She started running a fever in the night and woke up this morning feeling even worse. I just scrubbed puke out of the carpet…

However, now we are snuggling on the couch. Curious George is on the TV, there’s a bucket next to me, and we are snuggling under a quilt that has been dubbed “Grandmas Pants”.

It is this heavy and cozy quilt made of old polyester pants my husbands Grandma made for him more than 20 years ago. Whenever anyone in our home is not feeling well they automatically choose this quilt to snuggle under.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the opportunity to really know his grandma, she had end stages of dementia when we got married and she passed away a few days after our oldest was born. Knowing her children and grandchildren though I can almost guarantee that she would be happy that it provides comfort when we are feeling down.

So here is to a day snuggled on the couch with my little girl in her footie pajamas, with a cup of coffee in my hand and feeling cozy under Grandmas Pants!

What are some things you find comfort in when you don’t feel well?
