The Most Important Sports Item I Own
As a mom of three very busy young athletes, this blanket is the single most important item I own. I keep TWO in my car at all times since first discovering it 3-years ago. It’s lightweight and stuffs into a carry sac that slips around my wrist, so I can easily take it along everywhere I go. This blanket has kept me warm through hundreds of games and practices. An added bonus, just throw it into the washer (and dryer) and it comes out perfect every time.
Everywhere I go people ask me where I got it. I took this photo last week when I walked up to a nighttime water polo practice and saw several of the other parents cozied up under their own copycat blankets. I promise no staging was involved, but it did inspire me to write this post. By the way, I had just left a soccer practice where another mom bought one on the spot after seeing mine.
This warm and cozy blanket has been my life saver so many times. And not just me, it has wrapped around and kept all of my kids and dozens of other parents – who snuggle up with me – warm, while watching a practice or game.
There are also Groupons for them for $25.99.
And even though cold weather may be on its way out, they double as a great picnic blanket or spot for the kids to play on while watching their siblings games or practices!
