« Santa came early | Home | Holiday House Tour »

Yeah, I know today is Thursday, but I took pics on Monday and we did stuff. So here ya go.

So the thing about my Daisy is she has never mothered a doll. She doesn’t play house. She doesn’t particularly like babies and has more than once mentioned the only reason she will have a husband is so someone will keep the babies quiet and change their dirty diapers. This only applies to human babies. She mothers stuffed animals and her dollhouse is an orphanage for baby animals (Calico Critters to be exact). And yet, on Monday, this happened.


Those are crochet Doctor Who dolls (crochet by me, to be exact). They are human and named Tenny and Smithy (for David Tennant and Matt Smith). Daisy took them from Tabitha, decided they were 4 and 5 years of age and became their mother. She treated them like babies, despite their pre-school age, my guess is she was avoiding the diaper years. So at 8 years old, she finally played mother and baby.

Moving on! Picture of my cat for no reason at all.


Cookies were baked by Tabi.


We went tree shopping.

Too big!

Too small!


That’s the one!!

Gotta put on the important ornament.


And finish off with the star!

    I never mothered baby dolls either, or played with kitchen stuff, etc. I remember having a lot of toys with that theme but they sat unused. But I did always love and mother and nurture my stuffed and plastic animals! I always said I was never having children or getting married. I just wanted lots and lots of dogs! So now I have one kid, and two dogs…and want more dogs! LOL Anyway, great tree!

    That’s so cute! Gillian never cared about baby dolls either (she used to throw them in the closet and push stuffed animals around in her doll stroller instead) so I was very surprised when a couple of years ago she started talking about what her future kids’ names are going to be. I figured I was going to be grandma to a lot of dogs and cats, LOL.

    And I love the Diet Coke ornament! We need one of those here.
