ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS...

All I want for Christmas is a Baby Alive, that pees and poops.

That was me when I was maybe 7 or 8, but I never got a Baby Alive that peed and pooped.  I got practical gifts like clothes; socks, underwear, pj's and dresses (beautiful homemade dresses!)  I got novels and art supplies.  I got Barrels Of Monkeys and Tip It.  I got Candyland and Chutes and Ladders, gloves and scarves.  But I never got a Baby Alive that peed and pooped.

Not until I got my very own, real live baby alive, that really peed real pee and pooped real poop.  In a way its probably a good thing that I never got a Baby Alive that peed and pooped because if I had a clue of how bad diaper changing could be, I may never have wanted to have my own babies... and I just can't imagine life without the Oompas!

Hmmmmm.... peace, quiet, access to my computer and cell phone 24/7, unlimited supply of Charmin, no need to share my truffles...  Okay, maybe I can imagine life without the Oompas.  But I don't think I'd enjoy it.  (except maybe for the part about the unlimited supply of Charmin).

I can't remeber what I was doing before these kids took over, but I bet I got plenty of sleep back then,  wish I could get more these days, oh well at least I can look forward to it again in another oh um 16 or so years.....

Yes, I always say.... just about 24 hours is enough to enjoy without the kids and then shortly after things seem too quiet and I miss them!!!  lol

be well,
Dawn

If only there were a door we could go through that would let us get away from our kids for a few hours now and then...

Oh yeah, there is. It's called Grandma and Grandpa's place. Thanks Mom and Dad. we'll see you in a few hours. If you need us you can leave a message at the front desk of the local Motel7.

I had a Baby Alive that was lost within days on our trip home from Arizona to Iowa.  Can you believe that my parents never replaced it?  I'm still traumatized.

Toys today are totally awesome.  When I get to play with my grandbabies I revert to childhood immediately. I hope you get to do that real soon too....Sandi
