Santa brought Bethy a Chou Chou Baby doll.Ã‚Â This princess cries and slurps on a bottle and pacifier.Ã‚Â But when she cries, boy it’s exactly like a two month year old’s cry.
To the point that when the thing starts weeping and Beth has tossed her aside for her Polly Pockets, I can’t leave it there sobbing.Ã‚Â I can’t even walk out of the room.
I pick the crazy thing up and give it its bottle as though real.Ã‚Â I know I’m a little on the odd side, but this is weird even for me.
But that cry just gets in my bones and I have to stop it.Ã‚Â Once I pick up the doll and “feed” her I try to snake my finger under the cloth body to shut the button off and I can’t get it.Ã‚Â Some freak at the toy factory’s getting a good chuckle over that, I’m sure.Ã‚Â Just put the button a teeny bit out of reach of the average adult’s fingers.
Oh, well.Ã‚Â I suppose as long as I don’t start wheeling the Chou Chou around the block in the baby stroller, I can still claim sanity status.Ã‚Â
So, what gifts did your kids get or did you stupidly buy for them yourself that is making you crazy now?
