First, my daughter...also known in my posts as Sweet Baby, Terrific Kid, Kiddo, Nicka (as in nick of time), Flossie, Flash or Hurry UP and Get Down Here!) had a birthday recently, and I swear she has been doing her best to brainwash me. Every other word out of her mouth is
MIA...MIA this, MIA that....MIA on the brain disease.
You see, MIA is the American Girl Doll of the year for 2008.
I know that because I've heard it at least a thousand times in the last month. And while I admit that she is PRETTY, $90 worth of pretty?
(Can I get a ka-ching, ka-ching, please???) And you know I'm
cheap....I mean thrifty! And that doesn't include the outfits!
I've been through the whole Build-a-Bear....where friends are made phase....
(I'm not allowed to reveal what my husband does for a living, but if you knew you'd understand when I say that he's concerned about protecting our identity, so my child appears faceless, but rest assured, she does have a face!)
I'm just now starting to get my sanity back!
I must admit that my wallet is lighter, but my "granddaughter" is a pretty girl! And the smile on T.K.'s face when she saw "her baby" for the 1st time was like any new mom's.....
