Cheapo Mom vs. Barbie and Ken's new duds

Everyday I try to make sure my children never lack for new opportunities to learn. Today, they wanted to go to the store and have me actually purchase clothes for their Thrift store dolls. Dolls that cost about a quarter each.
"Oh, no, no", I cried, aghast. "you'll have so much more fun making clothes yourselves".
"How?" they whined.
"You are both so smart, I know you can figure out something!" I reassured them.
They did.
They figured out how to use two entire rolls of toilet paper wrapping up their baby dolls like little mummies. They lined them all up on the couch. It was kind of creepy.

I would have taken pictures, but I was too busy yelling.

They moved on to cutting clothes out of paper with my hair-cutting scissors that I was sure I had hidden.

Gotta go and hide the towels.

  1. Ok... I'm a mom, I KNOW how expensive things are, and I am frugal enough to NOT purchase clothes from the store for the dolls (unless it's a thrift store too) so I totally know where you are coming from!! But, I HAD to giggle at the kids' ingenuity!! Very creative girls you have there Catherine! :)
