The other day Valondra, the girls and I were at Walmart we walked down the toy section I was looking for a baby doll for the girls. K got all excited and keep saying mine mine. And I will say here and now the toys did look pretty and shiny. With all K's excitement it made me wonder should I be buying her more fancy toys (made in China) instead of making her toys or just have the toys that were her Mom's and Uncle Jim's. After we got home I watched the girls closely to see if they were missing something by not having those fancy toys.
As you can see I don't think they are missing anything K seem very content to play with junk mail magnets siting in my coffee table that doubles as her toy box. But I still wonder in the back of my mind when I see her cousins who have every fancy toy and techno gizmo you could think of. I so want the girls to enjoy the simpler things in life. By the way I didn't find a baby doll most are alittle odd looking and do to many things not leaving much for the imagination. I really want to get the girls a Waldorf doll but that's more than my budget can afford. If anyone out there in blogland knows of a good pattern or knows how to make them and would like to make one with me I'd love to hear from you.
My advice to all you is take it easy, keep it simple, don't stress out this holiday make something to give the girls love the hats I make them every year. Hope you all have a good day.
