My cousin and I went shopping today with our little ones. There will be a Christmas party on Sunday to be held at our friend’s house in Forney. It is also going to be a Filipino-American gathering within the circle of friends. But we can invite newly met friends too. Anyway, we went to Kohl’s to buy some gift items for the party. The amount of the exchange gifts for adults is $25 and $10 for the kids.
Our daughters had a great time looking at stuff at the store although their time on their feet was limited. Some cute baby clothes, Christmas dresses, and shoes are on sale. We used the $10 Off coupon that the store sent us in the mail. Of course we had to sign up so they can send us promotion alerts and discount coupons. It is really wonderful to get those types of coupons. Both of us are bargain shoppers so we saved a lot today.
One of the nicest toys I dreamed of having when I was a little girl was a doll. Yes, a doll. I used to play paper dolls when I was a teenager too. Somebody promised to give me a doll before. But he did not fulfill his promise. I was very disappointed. So was my mother because she knew about it. The person who promised me that is an old man now. He is not able to work anymore.
Whenever I see dolls at the toy section of a store, the memory flashes back to me. But I do not care about it now. All I care is for my daughter’s. I want her to have one. Young girls should have a doll to play with. To me, it is a symbol of femininity. As a grown up, I still adore dolls.
There are girls who collect dolls: baby dolls, barbies, miniatures, and even big dolls. These are all time gift for girls on special occasions like birthdays and Christmas. And it would be nice to give an 18 inch doll too. It is exciting to dress up a doll this tall. And I am pretty sure my daughter will like this.
