Our Newest Baby (It's a Car!)
Although we can't even begin to compete with the real babies, here's a photo of our newest addition. I think it's a boy. The kids and I take turns opening and closing the door to his house. It's great fun. The backseats fold flat which is great for transporting new furniture. Like this new chair I got from a 92 year old hustler. She wouldn't let me leave her house without looking at everything for sale, including some sweet vintage coats that would only fit a very small person. She also tried to sell me a toaster oven that she only used once, practically new! It was totally circa 1975. She was priceless.
It's great having a car that works. The radio works, the a/c works, the brakes work, it doesn't make funny noises, it even came pre-scratched (it's used, just barely). We'd rather have a real baby, but this one does let us sleep through the night (That is until Miriam starts driving it).
