. . . gargantuan decapitated Barbie head! No, she does not have a body. Just a big head and a neck that looks sawed off at the shoulders. I thought to myself, I can’t believe I just bought my child a head! What type of mother am I? Why not get her a doll that also has a body! Nevertheless, my little girl absolutely loves to play with this life-sized head of hair: twisting, knotting, brushing, pulling, and braiding the nylon blonde wig. Now, I confess I love it because toddler-girl can express her creativity on doll head rather than Mommy’s hair or, worse, on baby brother’s hair. The problem is that Barbie Head has claimed her space on the glass coffee table and greets me every morning with her glazed beady stare that seems to say, “Why did you let your child do this to me?” I sip my coffee, salute her, and think to myself, “Better you than me.”
Have you had any toys you’ve gotten your child and realized similar thoughts?
Oh, and some exciting news: remember last week as a stomach virus stormed through my home I confessed having to do a very bad thing to little girl's most cherished blankee? Well, I entered a free blanket giveaway and I actually WON! Thank you Heather for hosting this giveaway. I always love visiting Heather's blog because she is a mom to a toddler AND twins! Now that's inspiration to me especially on the days I struggle with only 2! Thank you also to My Blankee for the gorgeous lavendar blanket--which is little girl's fav color! As you can see from the action shot, toddler-girl couldn't stop kissing and hugging it. You made my little girl's day!
