A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
It's creepy

To the left is Tawny.

Tawny is Barbie's horse.

Tawny is also OmegaDotter's horse as of last night.

(Tawny was not too expensive.)

Tawny walks.

Tawny makes galloping noises.

Tawny whinnies.

Tawny's walking and gallopy noises and whinnying are kind of creepy.

Tawny really walks.  All by herself.  Very nicely on the linoleum floor in the kitchen and hallway.  Badly on the carpet in the living room.

But it's still kind of creepy.

OmegaDotter, of course, adores her.

OmegaDotter, who also got a pink rodeo roping rope, has been practicing roping Tawny in the living room, with instruction from OmegaDad.  OmegaDad's report from the feed store is that the guy there told him, in a quiet aside, that the only people he has ever seen purchasing the pink rodeo roping rope are guys.  Guys with daughters.  Har.

    I think OmegaDotter needs a real pony. (I was waiting for you to show a picture of the Dotter's Tawny as opposed to Barbie's Tawny.)

    Happy 5th birthday to The Dotter! Creepy as Tawny may be, I assure you that NOTHING is as creepy as the musical, talking, moving mouth Wishing Fairy Dora. My mother gave this monstrosity to DD at Thanksgiving and I have fantasies of offing the doll while the kid is asleep.

    OTOH, it is pretty creepy that Barbie's horse is blonde. Not surprising, though. WASP-y doll, WASP-y horse.

    Happy Big Five to Dotter! Your creepy pony made me think of my brother-in-law (the absolute king of annoying gift-givers).

    This year he gave our little one Amazing Amanda. Think Chuckie in a wig and sleeper. You actually have to spend 15 minutes programming things like the time and date in to this creepy dolly so it can wake up on cue every morning. Hint to all toymakers, voice recognition is not ready for primetime on computer desktops, what makes you think it's ready for 5 year olds. Grr.

    Here's a tidbit of what Amazing Amanda will say: "Amanda go potty.. [plop plop sounds].. eewww.. poo poo stinky..". What a wonderful toy. Too bad it was suddenly misplaced only days after we opened it. ;)
