Bouncing Baby Coconut

When last we saw the coconut, it had arrived at my husband's office, via the United States Postal Service, bedecked in a fetching red hat, just in time for the Christmas holiday.

I asked for suggestions as to the coconut's next incarnation, and to my great delight, the lovely and talented Very Mary* volunteered: "Do you trust me enough to send the coconut here and allow me to have a crack at it? I'd be honored to decorate it and then send it on for you..." I tell you, I swooned when she left that comment.

We emailed back and forth, I mailed the coconut off to her, and she discovered the inner infant in the well-traveled nut.

Last week, Very Mary gently wrapped the new baby and mailed it off to my new nephew, confounding his parents and thrilling his aunts.


A big welcome to the little baby, and a huge round of applause for Very Mary!





* She has a blog and not one, but two etsy shops!

A traveling newborn coconut. Cuter than cute. I should get lots of produce and let my kids dress them up...better than baby dolls!

Awesome. Perhaps the best part? Coconuts sleep through the night at birth.
