    Hi, just read your blog. Jenny and I were looking for a poncho for Erin but couldn’t find one that was right for her. I thought about making one for her, but I’m glad you found one–even though it is not 100% ok. About Erin’s crying when you’re around–were you ever sick at night or away from your mom and wanted her there with you so you could cry. I have done that after my Mom being dead for 30 years–when my purse was stolen off my shoulder, I wanted my mommie. Be flattered–it’s love. Mom/Retha
