Oh, Baby — 18 Months Later
August 7th, 2011
About eighteen months ago, I was all in a dither over Miss Mouse’s first baby doll. I wanted my girl to have the perfect doll to be her constant companion. After a long hunt, I found an exquisite, eco-friendly doll. Then, about a year after that, I searched high and low for another great baby doll to be Miss Mouse’s “big sister” present, even having special clothes made for it through Etsy. Then I didn’t give it to Miss Mouse because it was too nice.
Yesterday, we got Buggie his first baby doll. It came from Walmart and cost $4. Look, life is different when you have two kids!
|Moments later, that poor baby doll took a block to the head…|
Miss Mouse fell in love with Buggie’s doll’s pink-hued twin and — given the excellent price point — we let her bring it home. The truth is, she was every bit as excited about that cheap doll as she was about the expensive, organic, super-green, dolls I’ve bought her in the past!
|She’s in love.|
