The Slanket


So don't think I'm terrible, but because of the never ending Xmas break, my children have a lot of time on their hands. I swear I've tried to keep them busy with sleigh riding, crafts, and their new toys, but there are just too many hours in the day. So, to fill some of them up, I'm admitting, we've spent a little too much time in front of the tube. Well, thank you now to the fabulous infomercials that fill up all of the children's tv channels in order to sell things to us via our kids...I have now been told that I have to buy each of my kids one of these Slankets! What's a Slanket you ask? Why it's a Blanket with Sleeves of course! Who would have thought. I informed them that we have plenty of warm cozy blankets in the closets that work perfectly well and I really don't think we need to spend $100 for each of you a Blanket with Sleeves! "But Mom, how are we supposed to get anything we need to done with one of our blankets. We cannot use our hands with one of our blankets. The Slanket allows us to use our arms and hands freely so that we can get all that we need to done while still staying warm." Good point children. You know what I think...I think SLANKET needs to hire my kids for their infomercial!
