I need a baby blanket mom!
Created By: Gwen Curtis

I crochet to relax and my favorite thing to make is pretty baby afghans. I always crochet while I'm watching TV so I usually have several on hand.
I have a mentally handicapped daughter that's 26. She is very generous with my baby afghans. She's been giving them away for years! She has come in from school and said I need a "Girl" baby blanket mom. The teacher is going to have a girl! Sometimes she will know the teacher's name. But most of the time she doesn't.
She's come home from having lunch with her dad and will say I need a "Boy" blanket mom, she's going to have a boy! I'll ask who and she'll say "The woman at the restaurant." She has given baby afghans to several girls that work at the grocery store near our house.
I have been at the nail shop with her and she will see that one of the girls is pregnant. The first thing she asks them: "Are you going to have a boy or a girl?" And then turn to me and say "I need a baby blanket mom!"
I don't mind at all....I am always happy to let her give the expectant mom a gift. And it thrills her to death to give it to them.
She always has to gift bag it and we usually just put Congratulations! Love Ashley (since half the time I don't know who she's giving it to and she can't tell me their name. (LOL!)
She is the light of our lives and she has brightened many other peoples lives as well.
