    Oh Lord, just kill me now. I just got back from an otherwise perfectly nice Sunday morning at my THIRD petting zoo of the summer. Followed by presents for the birthday girl where we're all compelled to ooh and aah over every thing.

    Ah, but it's true!

    She took that Barbie everywhere with her, it even went swimming with us, because she had a cool swimsuit too!

    I had two birthday parties for my babies last week. They're one year two days apart, 5 and 6 this year, no pretending there's no birthday.

    I won't let people bring presents. I get them a couple, meet those who want to participate at the park and levae it at that. No invitations this year...word of mouth only.

    We had 3 cakes in as many days last week. I'm about caked out.

    The last time, we an "official" birthday party was when my son was 1 year old. He is now 6. After that party, because I had worked myself to the bone, I was sick for a week with the flu. I'd like to give him a birthday party, but it will probably with his older sister in the summer. It will be an unbirthday party during the summer because their birthdays are in the colder months.

    Since race doesn't exist, I don't see how anyone can label a doll "African American".

    :lol:

    Who has ever said race doesn't exist?

    Well, you better tell that to the makers of the Cabbage Patch Dolls! And those Blue Smurfs!
