After seeing a tiny crib for baby dolls while out running errands, S decided she would make a “crib” for her baby. One zillion points to S for (1) not begging for the store-bought version, (2) fantastic creativity, and (3) being such a great mommy to her doll.
Check out her favorite doll “Angie” in her new digs.
The bed was originally the box our garbage bags came in, and there is a flap you can close if Angie wants to sleep in the complete darkness. The box was decorated by S and softened with a layer of fuzz (can you see the white stuff inside the box? some of it came from a pillow in T’s room and some came out of the hole in the back of Angie’s head…).
And yes, you read that correctly.
There is a hole in the back of Angie’s head.
How else would we get the fuzz out of her? And back into her? And back out of her? And back into her? And back out of her?
And without that soothing ritual, how would S get to sleep?
But that is a whole ‘nother blog post… The point of this post is that now S and her baby are both sleeping comfortably. (S at nighttime, while Angie is in her arms on soothing duty…and Angie during the day, in her new bed!)
Love you S. Other than the nightly lobotomy you perform on your doll, you are an excellent mommy. On behalf of Angie and everyone in our house who loves her (and we all do…Angie will get her own blog post soon…) thanks for the new, wonderful bed!
