For Christmas this year Caile and Ella each wanted one of the 18 inch dolls which some of their friends had. I figured they were a little old for dolls and that they would quickly get bored of them and they would end up at the back of the closet or somewhere similar. So far though this hasn’t happened.
Actually the opposite has happened. They are with these dolls all the time. They treat them like their children and take care of them very well. If we are playing games at night they will stop in the middle if it reaches their dolls bed time so they can take them up stairs, change them into their pyjamas and put them to bed.
I think the best part is when they leave for school each day they setup their dolls doing activities so they aren’t bored while no one is around.
