Hey Blockhead, I got a new Linus Woobie

Ok not to get all serious but this is an important cause close to me. On Black Friday I was out shopping at Urban Outfitters and found a new woobie. (If you don’t know what that is, go watch Mr. Mom and then come back and finish reading this.) Anyways I was thrilled because it was a super soft blue blanket but if that wasn’t good enough I read the side of the box and found out it was a Project Linus blanket!!!

Project Linus provides blankets to comfort children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. My nephew was born early and had to be in the NICU for awhile. During the time he was in the incubator since they can’t have anything in there with them they drape the blankets over the top to help block out the light. Then when he was well enough he was able to use it as a regular blanket.

Now he’s 17 months old and super healthy but he still has his Project Linus woobie.

And, obviously when you have a blanket this cool you only need to rock one sock :)

So if you have a lil one you need to buy for this year or if your big like me but still love a comforting woobie then please buy one. It’s really such a good cause. When you’re a parent and your lil one is suffering it’s the worst feeling ever and to think that a blanket from a volunteer might help bring a little comfort, well there’s just no words so help out a good cause.
