Last night we had to run to Wal-Mart to get a soft sided crate for Daisy. After we found one that would fit in my suitcase Leo told me to get myself something to snack on for our movie, The Martian Child. I immediately grabbed a box of Hot Tamales and he got some Mike -n- Ike's. After that I told him I wanted to walk down the toy isle with munchkin.
She was in awe of everything in the toy isle. She played with toys that I would let her hold, she looked around at everything surrounding her.
She was in heaven, absolute heaven.
But me being the rational person I am (okay, Leo really told me what I'm about to say, but since this is my blog lets pretend I said it, okay?) decided to hold off on getting her a pushing/riding lion until we get to Texas. As Leo pointed out, "Hon, that can't go on the plane with you guys".
Really? It wouldn't fit as a carry-on?
Thanks, hon, sometimes I don't know what I would do without you always being the rational one.
Okay, back to the story--sorry, Leo, I love you to pieces, but you always make me laugh :)
I declared to Leo we needed to get Bella a baby doll. She has lots of stuffed animals, but no baby dolls. Off to that isle we go.
I immediately looked over the shelf a made a mental note of the ones that looked creepy and acted creepy. I had a vast variety in my hands to let Bella pick out a cute baby.
That didn't work. She kept staring at this one cheap-o doll. It cracked me up that she didn't want a nice one, she wanted the simplist doll of them all.
So, without further anticipation, here is her new baby.
If it counts for anything, the baby laughs and Bella either laughs herself or just smiles. She talks to baby and all around loves her.
Hopefully this cheap thing will last until she goes away to college....
