Have you met ‘Nother Baby? It has been apart of our family since Gabby was 14 months old. It originally was supposed to be a play gym for her sister. However, Gabby picked it up and proclaimed it Bady.
Time goes on. My stepsister finds the SAME one. We proceed to give it to Gabby so we can FINALLY give Bady a bath. By this time Bady has been turned into Baby.
She immediately throws a fit.
NO, not that one. I want ‘Nother Baby. The kid knew which one was which simply by how much crinkle was in its head. From that day we’ve called it ‘Nother Baby. We prayed that it was never lost…because it would mean an absolute disaster in our household.
‘Nother Baby has been boxed and unboxed. Its been left and taken. But its never left my daughter’s imagination.
And although I know that soon I will pack up ‘Nother Baby for good, for now I love those sweet moments when I find that her friend still tags along with her. I will relish these last simple moments of childhood.
