The first thing we (I) bought for the baby...

I actually got these a while ago...a long while ago. I'm almost embarrassed to say I bought them freshman year of college.

When I was a kid I lost tons of mittens and gloves. Most had mitten clips, but those never worked. In fact if you every have a chance to sit down with my mom she might tell you the time one spring when I came home with a soaking wet mitten clipped to my hat; it was on my hat so it was closer to the sun and would dry faster. The mitten was lost in the winter and uncovered during the first thaw, I was so happy I found it (FYI they were probably Freezy Freakies.)

So imagine how amazed I was to see these at a Gap outlet. I thought they were the most brilliant invention, mittens attached to each other on a string, you couldn't lose them. I wondered why no one thought of this earlier. I had to buy them for any future kids I'd have.

So several years pass, these mittens were safely kept in storage and Staci found them. She thought it was endearing that I had them and asked what was special about them. I told her how I was amazed at how awesome it was that they were attached by a string and that although Gap had a brilliant thing going on, I thought the idea would get lost and therefore my kid wouldn't be able to experience such greatness.

She of course laughed and told me that they were not only still available but that mittens on a string have been around forever. I probably had them as a baby.

Any way I still have them and they will go to our baby. I still think whoever invented these was brilliant.
