We had a lot of fun growing up, but there was one thing my mom never had a sense of humor about.
My baby dolls.
Every time a new doll was brought into the house, I was required to take an oath. I would stand in front of my mom with my right hand raised, and repeat after her – word for word.
I promise to love (insert doll’s name) with all of my heart. I will never lay her face down – she will always be able to breathe. I will brush her hair and keep it tidy. I will include her in my activities and make sure the other dolls are nice to her. I will always dress her appropriately for the weather, and I will wipe her clean whenever she gets dirty.
So it was no surprise that my mom sent me this email last week in honor of the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day.
Just wanted you to know that the girls are all ready for Opening Day! One of them is a bigger Reds fan than the other – can you guess which one?
