We had a big accident in our house last week. It was really sad and quite traumatic to say the least. You all remember the dolls that we have that cost more then most people spend on their heart medication..right? Well, both of my girls have one and they LOVE them....OK, I love them. I really want Kit Kittridge if anyone is interested in an early birthday present or just a present for me being all wonderful and great..no? Always worth a shot.
Anyway, these dolls go with us to lots of places...they are almost always in the car with us and they are in constant need of a wardrobe change. Weird but, they are always changing clothes. My youngest is very consistent with her doll and she rarely matches and NEVER has her hair brushed..much like everyday life in my house. They have gone to lunch with us and my friend Sunshine and were totally discriminated against. Not sure if it was the fact that they were little people or the waitress did not believe they were real? At any rate, they were NOT given a menu and they were not allowed to order. GASP!!! I know...hard to believe that people like that still exist in the good ol' USA but, sadly, they do.
Yes, we have a very unhealthy love for the American Girl dolls that reside in our house and I am still keeping my fingers crossed that I will be adopting Kit in the future but, if we don't love them...who will? Imagine my heart ache when Julie (my oldest daughter's doll) had an unfortunate run in with the curly slide at the park. She was playing nicely on top of the slide (so not safe and if I was there I would not have allowed such radical behavior) when she slipped and fell from the top. She was injured and injured badly. She has a broken leg, sprained ankle, broken arm, broken thumb and various scrapes and bruises that have required an obscene amount of band-aids. She has been confined to a wheelchair since the accident and she is making little progress. Her broken thumb has since healed (only because the thumb splint has fallen off and may have been eaten by the cat) but, her legs are still broken or sprained and due to the broken arm she is not able to use the crutches. She is in bad shape so, please keep her in your thoughts this week as we are all hoping for a speedy recovery.
PS...Poor Julie spends her day longing to go outside. FYI - Yes, all of the items have been purchased for American Girl Dolls at a ridiculously high rate. Looks like someone will be going without their heart medication again.
