nice things

I am still trying to wrap my head around just what happened in the comments section on Wednesday.

You guys, you and you and you (and you and you) who emailed Angel Pack about the situation?

THANK YOU. 

Nelly and Stormy from Angel Pack?  Who are giving me a new Angel Pack?

THANK YOU!

So many of you spoke out on my behalf, so very many many of you that it blew me away.
It feels a little like my birthday, and not because I am getting a present (as amazing and wonderful and fantastic as that as) but because you guys devoted time and energy for me, and wrote emails for me, and cheered with me.  Because you did something nice for me.  And it was all just to see what happened, no promise of anything, just to try, selflessly giving your time and energy to do something nice. You are nice.  Thank you.

He is very cute and very heavy to hold in one arm while I push a grocery cart full of kids with the other arm.
Thank you also for all the nice things you said on Angel Pack's Facebook wall.  If you haven't "liked" them yet, I know they would love the love.

  2. I am so happy that your sad experience had a happy ending. I didn't think to email the Angel Pak people, BUT when I saw that they had contacted you, I immediately checked them out. Next thing you know, I'm emailing my SIL (who is having my niece next month) to see if she wants one of their carriers as a present. And I absolutely am jonesing for my own for our next baby, whenever that happens. I love supporting a great company, and look - hopefully they'll get two sales out of their gift to you. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who is thinking about it!

  3. I'm so happy everything worked out for you, I felt so bad imaging you trying to go out with three little ones and no baby carrier. I hadn't even heard of the Angel Pack until you wrote about it and now I'm trying to think of a way to get the money for one because they look so comfortable for the baby and more secure than my old mei tai. So thanks for mentioning it :)

  11. That was so quick! All of this almost makes me wish that I didn't already have an Ergo so I could buy and Angel Pack! I guess I will just have to get them for all of the pregnant family members I happen to have right now :)

  12. Oh lady, I am SO glad to see this!!!

    I have been thinking of you, we checked out a book from the library this week - The Super Hungry Dinosaur. The little boy's name is Hal!!! Everytime I read it I think of your little Hal and how it is not a very common name and that you must own it for him to read someday :)

    That's all. You rock. xoxoxo
