“Mikey Likes it!” You may remember a slogan from a commercial some years back where kids push off the then-new cereal, Life to Mikey, who was too young to realize the product was being touted as healthy. Ends up that Mikey’s happy so the older boys accept that the cereal might have good flavor as well as nutritional value. As the boys were in anticipation of reaction, I was in anticipation of feedback whether my daughter liked her hand knitted Hedgehog Mitts. And, I indeed heard word that ‘Mikey likes them!’ I believe the exact words were, “They are perfect!” (Keep in mind we are serious animal lovers, here.) And, in fact, she is seizing the opportunity with her now retired Mother requesting that every gift from this point on (from me) be hand-knitted. Smart girl. And, by the looks of things she is not the only one finding some bit of humor and joy in them.
ok, now I am getting silly . . .
