(This post is not really such a serious topic...but the title almost seems to fit…)
The girls have been playing with a couple of sets of dolls, one plush, and one mostly plush. Given their recent fascination with babies, I thought it might be time to give them one of the sets of twin dolls they got for their birthday. These dolls have soft bodies, but their heads, arms, and legs make them look much more like real babies.
I walked into the den yesterday cradling both dolls. You should have seen the girls’ faces light up! They both exclaimed, “Baby!”
Since then, they’ve hardly put the dolls down. They have played with other toys, but it’s primarily been with one of their dolls tucked under their arms.
Seeing the girls run around, clutching their “babies”, makes me realize they’re not so much babies themselves anymore…they’re changing into little girls before my eyes.
I am certainly looking forward to the days of tea parties and dress-up (and sidewalk chalk and Big Wheels…just so you don’t think I’m pushing them to like only frilly things…), but wow! I didn’t expect it to be coming on so soon!
