Since Zoe has been too sick to babysit while I use the computer play lovingly with her brother, he’s taken it upon himself to make a friend.
Meet Dolly, she is Troy’s new best friend.
She has eyes, just like us. This is mind blowing to Troy, who jams his finger into her eye socket and tells us, “EYEZZ!”.
They do everything together. She comes in handy when they are kicking back watching those crazy cats on Sesame Street. Dolly doesn’t mind being used as an arm rest as long as you hold her hand.
Dolly is pretty low maintenance. She just gets a little thirsty from time to time and is very grateful for milk with a bit of Ovaltine from the sippy. Sometimes she doesn’t pay attention and so Troy yells, “DINK IT!” (drink it) to help her focus.
I asked Troy what he thought his dad would say when he came home and we introduced him to Dolly.
I’m sure he will be fine with Dolly and if he argues with me about his son having a doll, well, I’ll just show him this photograph.
Because you totally can’t argue with that.27 comments »
