If you ask my son what he wants to be when he grows up, he will tell you quite frankly “I want to be a daddy!” He loves babies and kids and he’s always asking if we can have 20 kids in our family…of course my response is always “Nope!” He has a baby doll that he got when he was almost two and in that stage where all that little toddlers love babies.
When his baby sister was born last December, my mom came to visit laden with matching items such as blankets and pajamas for his baby sister and his baby doll. It was very thoughtful of her.
There have been many times when my laundry baskets have been confiscated by Christian to use as his baby’s bed. Until one day after a visit to Sam’s Club when I realized that one of those dumb half/cardboard box things they give you to load your giant items into was about the perfect size and shape for a baby bed.
So, Christian picked some paper that he liked and I mod-podged the thing and made a cushion. Now it’s a very cheap baby bed that I won’t feel guilty about discarding when his love of his baby doll has bid its last farewell and I can use the cushion as a toddler pillow for one of his sibling(s)…
