When we arrived home from vacation, you can imagine my girls’ joy when they saw a surprise waiting for them. There’s nothing they like better than presents. Ice cream rates a close second.
We tore into it a few days later (I’m that mean mommy that makes them wait until it’s a good time for me), and they’ve been playing with their Little Mommy Sweet As Me dolls since.
The best thing about these dolls for the girls is that the toys represent girls their own age, who do the things they are interested in doing. Now, instead of being someone’s mommy, they’re someone’s playmate!
They also came with a change of clothes and each girl has been “going to a party,” “stomping in rain puddles,” and “going to ballet” several times in the past few days. While I still have to help them change the clothes, I make them watch me closely each time and explain what I’m doing, which order the steps go in.
