Right before Maggie and I left my house yesterday to go pick up her brothers at the bus stop, she had informed me that her babies were awake and needed milk. Earlier she had put them in the cradle and covered them up and rocked them to sleep and sung them a lullaby before she and I played a game of cards. But then, as good mothers do, she had heard them wake up and knew what they needed. She came to me and asked for milk in a cup for them and I got her some pretend milk in a sippy cup. Then I got busy getting myself ready to leave and finding her shoes and putting them on her and getting her in her car seat.
When I got home last evening, I found her babies waiting patiently for their milk right where she'd put them.
I love that little girl. She has stolen her MerMer's heart.
Maggie is so clearly a well loved child. She acts out what she knows. I also love that she has dolls of all colors, that reflect our world.ReplyDelete
These dolls are the ones left from when my own kids were little. Although my grandsons have all played with them at one time or another, they have not really been loved since Magnolia came along. It makes me so happy to see them being tended again.Delete
Ha! Very cute! She's a nurturer.ReplyDelete
Yep. As I say, Maggie's nature is to nurture.Delete
Sweet girl. I had hair like doll no. 3 then I was little :)ReplyDelete
A little out of control, that one. I should attempt to do something about it, maybe but honestly, I doubt Maggie cares one bit.Delete
Dollies are so patient, save when they're not.ReplyDelete
Yeah. They CAN get rowdy!Delete
She's a treasure, and I love that her dolls are diverse...ReplyDelete
She loves them all, as mothers do.Delete
She's stolen my heart too.ReplyDelete
The more people who love her, the better. Even from afar. That's how I feel about it, anyway. So thank you, Barbara.Delete
