Our girl has a new obsession. If you've read my blog at all, you understand her obsession with her dolly. She literally goes everywhere with us. Once in a while I'll get lucky and get out of the house without her but it doesn't happen very often. We've added to that mix. She now must have four of her stuffed animals with her pretty much at all times. The dolly, the bunny I got her for Easter, the Blues Clues dog Shaun's parents got her when they were here in July, and the newest addition, a dog we got when Aunt Randi and Drew were here. She's had all of these for a while now, but just over the last week, must take them everywhere with her. Upstairs at night, downstairs in the morning and yes, into the car when we go somewhere and in turn, into the stores we go to. Yes, I was walking around Wal-Mart and Costco yesterday with all of these animals in tow (they sit next to her in the cart). I try to leave without them but she looks at me with those sad eyes and says "bun" and "dog". What is a mommy to do? Maybe I'm a pushover but instead of refusing, I'm giving in because she is only little once and will probably outgrow this (I hope) very soon. Here is some photographic evidence of her new addiction:
Did I mention they have to sit with her to eat too?
And that she carries them all at once??
I have no idea where this addiction came from all of a sudden but am trying to enjoy it rather than be burdened by it (even when I have to go back in the house to get "bun" because we forgot him). Did your kids have any addictions like this and when did they give them up??
