Lately DJ has been getting more and more into her baby dolls. I love this because I too had a special baby doll that came everywhere with me. Her name was Justine and She sat fully dressed on the shelf in DJ’s closet.
One day D asked for the baby on the shelf. I was a bit hesitant but we got Justine down and I told her that this was “mommy’s baby”. She played with her for a minute and I put Justine back up on the shelf. I told my mom about this and she asked why I didn’t leave Justine down for DJ to play with. I guess I was worried that poor old Justine couldn’t handle being toted around by a toddler again, but my mom made a great point that Justine had pretty much already seen the worst of things with me.
So, I let DJ take Justine down, and wouldn’t you know, she loved her and insisted on having both the babies ride in the car with her on the way to school! I love that she is turning into a little momma!
