🧶 Hey there, crafty mamas and papas! 👋 I've got a colorful conundrum on my hands and I need your help. 🙏 I'm a first-time poster and long-time lurker, currently pregnant with baby #2. 🤰 My 3-year-old son is super excited about his baby sis, and I wanted to involve him in the prep. 👶 So, I let him pick out the yarn for one of the blankets I'm crocheting... and boy, did he pick a vibrant one! 🌈 But now, a friend has me second-guessing my rainbow blanket choice. 😕 Let's dive into this story and see if I'm the a-hole here. 🤔

🧶 The Great Rainbow Blanket Debate: AITA? 🤔

So, there you have it folks - the tale of a loving mama just trying to involve her excited big bro in baby prep, only to be called out for her rainbow blanket choice. 😲 I never meant to offend anyone who's suffered pregnancy loss, and I certainly wasn't trying to claim a 'rainbow baby' status. 🙏 I was just letting my toddler pick a pretty yarn! 🌈 The internet has spoken loud and clear on this one, and I'm feeling relieved that my pregnant brain didn't miss some major social faux pas. 😅 Sounds like this mama can keep on crocheting with a clear conscience! 🧶 Now, let's see what you all have to say about this colorful situation... 👇

Rainbows aren't just for those who suffered miscarriages 🌈👶🏻. NTA, finish the blanket & congrats! 🎉
