baby alive

annabelle and julian have been obsessed with Christmas consumerism this year. despite my efforts to fast foward through commercials when they watch cartoons, they have been confiscating the toys-r-us mailers that come through our newspaper, and at bedtime, this is the "story book" that they want to read. i'm pretty creative, but i just can't come up with an interesting story line for these "books".

annabelle told me the other day that she wanted a "Baby Alive" for Christmas. I told her, "Annabelle, you don't even like baby dolls, why would you want a "Baby Alive?"

She said, "I AM getting a Baby Alive for Christmas. and she pees and poops and eats and cries..."

I told her, "Annabelle, I think I am getting one of those for Christmas can just help me with mine."

That's hilarious.

Good luck with your newborn Baby Alive.

I had a baby alive when I was little and the food rotted in her tummy. Never pooped it out - I guess she was the constipated version. She was eventually tossed into the trash to avoid contamination!!
