Mother Abuse

I used to think it was torture. Cruel and unusual punishment. Like twisting that knife in my heart a little bit more.


Why would they do that?


Sure, they don't know better, but is that really an excuse?


Now I think, it's fine, I don't need you. Obviously you still need me. Listen carefully, I can not help you. I will try to pawn this off on someone else, I can't guarantee they will go for it.


Hillary, Jennifer, Karen, Paula, Monica and my other friends with girls,


Please come pick up this latest issue of the American Girl catalog before I pitch it in the garbage.





UPDATE: Are you people INSANE? I just flipped through the catalog on the way to the garbage. Do people really spend that much on a doll? And $250 for a doll treehouse? Umm, is it life size? Can't you get a kid-size fort for $250? Is this one lined in gold?

Does anyone really spend this kind of money on dolls? God Bless Legos and GI Joe.

Pitch it! I don't want my girls anywhere NEAR that catalog. We went to the American Girl store in Chicago a few years ago and, thank God, my girls didn't care! Hooray!

I'm still trying to deal with the fact that I have have girls. Can you tell?

Monica said...

Yeah, recycle that puppy! We didn't even go to the store in Chicago this summer (Jim was very happy not to be dragged in there!)

I didn't pitch ours...instead I cut it up and now the Little Imp has some freakin' huge paper dolls. I put a little velcro on the back and she sticks them on some felt board we have downstairs. Thankfully she doesn't know what they are...yet.

I think it's really for grandparents. That's how Gabi got her bitty baby and a trunk full of clothes. If I was buying, cutting out the pictures to paste into her gazillion notebooks would be about as close to an american girl doll as she'd get. The prices are crazy! I think Auds has a great idea...

OMG I get this catalog too. Why I don't know??? It does confirm why I don't have girls. NO way would I spend that kind of money on a doll! Now a baseball bat for $300 sure.

We get it too. I just gave it to Anna, the little girl I babysit and she was in "hog heaven!" : )

One more benefit of just boys... ; )

Paula said...

We got it too. The girls looked at it and it went away quickly.
Maddie has a bitty baby, but it was NOT bought by me. I agree with everyone else... CRAZY prices.

This one and the FAO Schwartz catalog are the first to hit the recycle bin. My oldest has been lusting after that damned $500 Millenium Falcon for three years! Or was it the Death Star? Either way, he has about the same chance of getting it as he has of getting the life-size R2-D2. They say that boys are cheaper than girls, but I'm not so sure sometimes....
