The flood of catalogs has begun. I try to get them into the recycling before the kids see most of them. But inevitably, some squeak by me. The kids pore over them and wishes and dreams are voiced. Yesterday, the American Girl catalog came.
Lissa could care less. KC kept trying to show them to her. She kept on ignoring him. Finally when she was in bed, he sat down and pored over it for himself. He wants an American Girl doll in the worst way. He read the stories of each doll aloud to me.
And you know what rots? I don't care one whit that he wants an American Girl doll. But the only way to get a boy American Girl doll (OK I fully realize how weird that part of the sentence looks) is to buy the Bitty Twins shown above. I can't have the only kid who wants a boy doll. Can't we have American Boys? Sigh. I see Itty Bitty Twins in our future.
