A couple of years ago, a friend of mine had a new baby. On the way to visit her, my husband and I stopped at Marshall’s to grab a gift for the bundle of joy. We picked out the cutest little socks and hat, and a baby blanket with elephants on it. Precious!
When my friend unwrapped the gift, she was gracious – but I saw it in her eyes. She didn’t like it. She played it off, saying how adorable it was, but I could tell she wasn’t in love. When I turned the corner into the child’s bedroom, I realized why – it was stocked floor to ceiling with blankets, stuffed animals, and other cute furnishings. She already had more blankets than she knew what to do with.
