Baby Mickey

We have one rubbermaid tub full of baby dolls, blankets, and accessories.

One.

If we put all of our stuffed animals in rubbermaid tubs, we'd have six or seven.

No, I'm not kidding.

And yes, we weed through all the stuffed animals all the time and get rid of ones that have lost interest or sentimental value.

All three of my kids prefer playing house with their stuffed animals over traditional dolls. Jaina and Jayce still play with their Build-a-Bear and Ugly Doll stuffed animals.

I bet you can take a guess at what Jocelyn likes to play with the most.


Jaina has taught Jocelyn an alternate version of "Hush Little Baby" which includes a grizzly bear going to time-out. Jocelyn wanted to wrap her Baby Mickey up in a swaddle so she could sing it to him. Jaina is such a great big sister.


Hush, little baby
Don't say a word.
Momma's gonna buy you
A Mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird
Won't sing
Papa's gonna buy you
A diamond ring.


And if that diamond ring
Turns to brass
Momma's going to buy you
A looking glass

And if that looking glass
Gets broke
Papa's gonna buy you
A billy goat


And when that billy goat 
Gets scared
Jaina's gonna buy you a
Grizzly bear!

(And that Grizzly Bear is going to go to Time-out for pulling your hair!)
