You are definately right.  It wasn't like I followed that with, "Sooo, do they still look like that?"   ;D

You should see some of the baby dolls they have out there now.  My dd got 2 dolls for xmas that are insane.  One really poops and pees after you feed it and the other you have to give a shot in the behind if you can't make it all better with the fake medicine.  And they sound like real babies.  It drives me kkkkkkkrazy.

Now it could be just one of those nasty rumors and thank goodness we can do our own research now days.. but rumor had it that those 'baby alive' dolls which was how they were being marketed years ago would eventually get maggots in them from the 'food' stuff... just passing along what could be total misinformation.

I had one of those dolls with the disappearing fluid bottles too.. great fun.. I still don't know how they did that


That is disgusting.   I have a feeling that doll is going to go missing soon.

Maybe the new and modern poo'ing dolls don't have that problem

My mother wouldn't let me have a Betsy-Wetsy doll because it was uncouth.  :'(

Another thought..then when I had my own kids, I realized she was right!  ;D ;D ;D

It's your table and you are in charge of who you invite to it. IMHO: that's enabling disrespect.

LOL I think you misinterpreted what I was saying to Pooh.. If you read Pooh's topic "The Stong Women In My Life" which is under the category of Success  Stories you'll see where the snake comes into play.  And it was all totally innocent no matter how vulgar it sounded here... Thanks  Pooh.. you got me into trouble again :)

Pooh

Don't be all a-blaming me....you get yourself in trouble just fine without MY help!   :P

I'm right there with you, Pooh.  Can't even look at a pic or see one on tv without breaking into a cold sweat.

While taking my shower, I realized I have my own "Who Does That??" story.  My brother & sister-in-law gave us some really nice towels for Christmas.  When I was opening the box, she said, "You know, I just couldn't remember what colors you had in the bathroom."  The comment led me to believe that I was getting towels in white, black or beige.  Imagine my shock when I finally got the box opened and the towels were purple.  Seriously??  You don't know what color scheme I have going, but you figure PURPLE will work?  (Note, it doesn't.)  I could tell all sorts of stories about her, while she's very nice, she truly has the thinking mentality of a gnat.


Pooh

Oh wow...purple?  Because THAT is a common bathroom color!

I'll be cleaning my purple bathroom tonight by the way.  ;D

Care to send them my way?

Haha. Not my choice! I bought the house as is. Blue tile, purple walls and pink tub.

I should take a photo.

Pink tub!  I like!  ;D

Pooh, yeah, exactly!  I have nothing in my house that's purple.  They gave my parents a king blanket.  The folks have a queen bed.  Have always had a queen bed - for decades.  SIL invited us over for Christmas dinner.  She put food on the stove and then took off.  We had no clue where she was, half the food burned because she didn't tell us to watch it, or that she was leaving, or whatever.  (They live on a farm, turns out she ran out to feed the horses, great timing, eh?) 

She's always complaining that no one will tell her all the birthdays, anniversaries, etc. in the family (she's a second wife, but she's been married to my brother for about 15 years).  Evidently she's incapable of writing anything down.  So I made a calendar for her, with lots of family photos and ALL the dates.  Months later, guess what?  She's complaining to me that she didn't know it was mom & dad's anniversary.  I asked her where the calendar was and she said, "Oh, I put it in my desk drawer."  I replied that I made it so that she could hang it up, enjoy the photos and that every month she would know what was coming up.  I was furious and said, "Don't ever tell me that you don't know a date and I promise I will never spend my time making anything for you again."  Thus far, we're sticking to the deal.
