My five year old son Logan and I have had Snuggie envy for quite sometime now. I must admit, when I started seeing the commercials on TV last year, I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever seen. I mean really, it’s a friggin robe you put on backwards. Every time the commercial would come on, I would get Logan into the room if he wasn’t already and we would watch the commercial together. I would say things like “Look Logan, you can change the channel in your Snuggie and you can read a book in your Snuggie or even talk on the phone in your Snuggie” and we would both laugh. Logan would say “We need one of those dad” and I would reply with “I know”! “Look at all the things you can do while wearing a Snuggie Logan”. “As if the Snuggie wasn’t enough, you get a BOOK LIGHT with it too”! My wife Paula would smile and shake her head while the older kids laughed at us.
As time went on and we saw the commercials more and more, I actually began to wonder if this whole Snuggie craze was legit. People seemed to be buying them up like hotcakes so there had to be at least SOME merit as to what was being advertised. I posted a post about them earlier this year and some readers that owned them commented and said they really liked their Snuggies. “Well maybe this whole Snuggie robe/blanket thing IS pretty cool then” I remember thinking.
This year at our Christmas Eve family get together, Logan had his Snuggie dream come true!
Logan unwrapped his Snuggie from his grandmother and grandfather and shouted “Look dad, I got a Snuggie”! “That’s AWESOME Logan” I shouted. “Now you can change the channel in your Snuggie and everything” I laughingly said.
Suddenly, I found my Snuggie envy go through the roof. Wanting a Snuggie is one thing but when the person that wants a Snuggie with you actually gets one, it’s a different story. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy as a lark that Logan got his Snuggie. I was just a little jealous. LOL
When it was my turn to open a present, I grabbed a package and began to tear the paper off. Little by little as the paper was ripped off, the print and photos on the box were revealed. Could it be? YES, IT IS!!
Yes dear reader, neither I nor Logan have Snuggie envy any longer as we are both proud owners of our very own Snuggies! I would like to send a special thank you out to Mom and Dad J. for giving us the blanket that has sleeves! 😀
