I am extremely sentimental. This causes me to save things. A lot of my memories from childhood are tied up in the toys that I played with and it feels important and special to share those toys with my children.
Looking through my old set of clothes and accessories, Jellybean ran across a couple of items that perplexed her:
Here's the upside. I now know what I'm giving to Jellybean for Christmas: a new Barbie (actually Midge who has her same color hair) and a new Ken as well (he'll look rockin' in the vintage clothes I have for him if they fit). We'll get to build new collection together and actually, after I got over the sadness of having to get rid of my old dolls, I realized that the new dolls are kind of cool. They all have articulated limbs which should make dressing and undressing the dolls a whole lot less aggravating. I can't wait for Jellybean to see her new dolls! I wonder if she'll be sentimental like me and save her new collection to play with a child of her own someday.
Have a Happy Day!
