Does anyone know? The Wee One has had what my MIL refers to as her "posse" for almost 2 yrs now. It started w/ Little People. Sonya Lee was her favorite for a long time & it was common place to see her running around with 3 or 4 LP in her hands at all times.
Then it was Dora & Boots. The first lost toy was Dora's dog, Perrito. We lost Perrito on a walk around the duck pond. I've scoured the area & he's never been recovered.
Now that we're into the Disney Princess era we have these little DP dolls. Think Polly Pocket in terms of size. Actually, we have a few Polly's too! So in the hey day of the Little Mermaid doll in the fall we went out to play with Ariel & Flounder (her little fish). Well, somewhere near the tennis court (aka Puppy Bowl) we lost Flounder. Again, Mommy bent over looking for Flounder, Wee One crying how he's lost. Never to be recovered.
We've also lost Snow White (I did find her in the house about a month after she was lost) & now Jasmine (less than a week after she was purchased!) & a Polly Pocket doll ahve been lost outside. Believe me, I've looked. How can a bleached blonde doll w/ a fuschia dress go unnoticed in pine needles? I dont get it.
I'm convinced that there's an Island of Lost Toys---much like the Island of Misfit Toys only it's toys that kids have lost. It's probably next door to the Island of Lost Airline Luggage too.
I'm out of my 10 month funk---ty everyone for being so sweet. I talked to a friend yesterday whose husband spent almost a yr in Afghanistan while she was preg. w/ their daughter. When she tells me she doesn't know how Ive done so many deployments I tell her I dont know how she did a deployment while pregnant. That's got to be the hardest. We laughed at my hitting the wall & how you dont realize it until you're full on in the funk. I am out of hte funk & STILL waiting for Leslie to return my knitting mojo!
Is it rediculous of me to not want to make a baby blanket on size 6 needles? I keep looking at this blanket I'm working on & thinking "but size 11 needles would make it go by SO much faster!"
