When I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew it was a boy. I don't know how I knew, but I knew. A few days after that, I went to a Christmas pottery sale and saw some adorable animal mugs made by a local potter. Since I was sure I was carrying a baby boy, I bought this blue elephant. When my son was old enough to use it, I let him drink out of it a few times, but I was always terrified he'd break it. I don't like having things in my home that have no meaning or practical purpose, so I recently gave this little guy one of the most important jobs in the kitchen, the garlic holder. I think he's much happier now rather than being stuck in the cupboard behind the mugs that do get used on a normal basis.
