Ok so I have been hesitating to write this post...
Why? you ask...
It's my 200th post!
I wanted to do something spectacular! Something to WOW you! Something! Anything!
but... you are just getting a regular post. sorry...
Christmas preparations are being made, Santa has received his laundry list of items from Poppy. I have tried to grab as much as I could, however she changes her mind daily on what Santa should be bringing her. I have resorted to telling her that Santa merely uses her list as a guide and picks the best gift for her, which might be on her list or it might not be.
Lucky kid I think she's getting it all. But let me be a little more specific.
She is getting 4 gifts, one of which is a nightgown. She is also getting... ugh... a Baby Alive. Do you know what this doll is? It "poops" and "pees." You are supposed to buy it "food." You are supposed to buy it disposable doll diapers. Buying this doll went against so many things that I believe in. I literally went to the store 4 times. I picked up the doll. I read the package over and over. I tested it by pushing the button to make it "cry." I seriously took the doll sat down on the floor in the doll aisle and stared at this over priced, over packaged, overly creepy plastic doll. As a mom who makes dolls (just in case you didn't know) I know that this doll will have it's day of excitement, Poppy will "feed" it, and let it "drink" it's packaged "juice" and change the one diaper it comes with. Then I am going to break my child's heart and hand her the cloth diapers that I am going to sew her baby, and then I will show her that her doll is only allowed to eat and drink water. I am so mean, I know.... but seriously. A doll that poops and pees? Give me a break.
Poor baby alive...she is destined for the floor, possible a lovely dark corner under the bed. Don't worry, she will have dust bunnies to keep her company.
I just imagined a Toy Story type nightmare. This Baby alive is going to come alive in the night and plan an attack on me.
I dare her.
My Poot & Boogie girls will kick her ass. My girls are old fashioned. They don't mess around.
So in honor of all things that are old fashioned and awesome I am giving away a custom Poot & Boogie doll!
Yup! Gotcha! Told you I was going to do something fun!
So you comment here...
I am going to go Tweet about it. I never tweet... ever... seriously.
Then I am thinking I might make a Facebook page.
I will let you all get your comments in and I will do a draw on January 1st. Let's start out 2011 with some giveaways!
YAY CLOTH! BOO PLASTIC!
