Comfort is Timeless

In colder weather I'd put the babies in blanket sleepers and we'd all get "cozywarm."  To this day (and they're in their 30s), the term is one word and in use!
This is our grand daughter, who called me last night to tell me she was "Cozywarm" in her new blanket sleeper.

The phrase I use is "comfy-cozy" which means alot to me.
Your granddaughter is adorable. I love her feet in pajamas!

Oh my Kathy she is precious, such a cutie! As a child, I adored those pajama "bags" we used to call them. They certainly kept us "cozywarm", the perfect term for how they make you feel!
When my sister was around 20 years old, she saw a picture of herself as a 3 year old in a pepto bismol pink "bag" and remembered how cozywarm they were. Being a big fan of being cozy she went on a hunt for an adult "bag". The fct that she rarely exerted herself for anything but spent over a month scouring states for a "bag" tells you how badly she wanted one. And she finally found one, thankfully not in the same shade of pink. She was cozywarm at bedtime that winter!

Silly me, I forgot to write that I had to google David Hyde Pierce. Did not know who you meant untill I saw his picture. I only know him from Frasier - which happens to be one of my favourite sitcoms :-)
XXX, C.
