Kylee has gotten her hands on the American Girl doll catalog - a mother's worst nightmare! She has so many requests I cannot hardly keep up with them. Every doll is "so cute" and she tells all of her friends that Santa loves her so much that he will bring her one. Well, Santa does love her but give me a break, they are EXPENSIVE!!! For some reason I have a really hard time justifying 75% of her Christmas budget being put towards ONE doll. I can just see her pulling the scissors out of the drawer and chopping all of that expensive hair off.
Did you know...Target carries a brand called "Our Generation" that look just like them. I was so excited when I saw them on the shelf tonight that I nearly wet my pants. They come with a change of clothes and sell other outfits for only $9.99! So, for less than $50.00 I got a doll that looks like the ones she has been dreaming of and was able to buy a few of the outfits too. I am trying to talk Tyler into the pink scooter because I just think it is so cute! So, I am one happy mamma tonight. My daughter will be thrilled on Christmas morning and she won't even know that it is not the real thing. Bring on the scissors...and thank you Target!
