Linking up with Cari and her Theme Thursday: Store
After having the three boys, I dreamed of one day having a girl to do girly things with. You know, the usual...buying cute dresses, braiding her hair, having tea parties, and of course, playing with dolls.
Then along came my sweet Maggie with her very strong opinions on fashion, her deathly fear of braids, her disinterest in tea parties, but at least she loved her dolls!

Anyway, so when Maggie was turning four, her cousins started to
brainwash expose her to all things American Girl. Maggie would devour the catalogs and make lists for which baby doll she wanted.
She had finally settled on a particular Bitty Baby with blond hair and blue eyes. And for her 4th birthday (almost 2 years ago...sniff...sniff), my little sister and I took our daughters to the American Girl Store near Boston and they were able to get their first dolls!
They were just a tad excited to get inside the store...but made sure to hold hands.
Once inside, Maggie changed her mind (it's a girl's prerogative!) and decided to get the Bitty Twin instead. She named her Rosemary Margaret, which is her name backwards, loved on her all day long, and then promptly forgot about her.
I guess she's not my girly girl after all.
Ah well, maybe God has a girly girl in store (pun most definitely intended!) for me yet :)
