Brat Three doesn’t mind online shopping. Also, while I need to explain about how it works and how, and why not to believe it (or anything) blindly, for now I am happy she has observed without really being told that writing on the computer gets answers.
first second time I met her she wanted many dolls and as many clothes as possible for them.
“Aapko kaise lagega agar aapko daily same kadpe pehenne parenge, DAILY? (Translation: How would you feel if you had to wear the same clothes everyday?) You will feel so bad. Same way! Mamma please type dolls’ clothes… for… , ab likho, “My daughter wants dolls’ clothes.. I want DEE – O – LLS clothes… yes. Like this… because my dolls have not so many clothes bus only two clothes. And write Brat Three wants to play with dolls and take a bath with dolls and dolls have not many clothes… some dolls have not any clothes, that’s why I am asking you… ”
“But actually I am okay if I have two sets clothes.” I said.
Doesn’t believe me.
“Now you have to wear the same clothes for ten days, then you will understand. I am telling you the truth… I want dolls to look nice, not wearing same dirty clothes everyday. Woooooowwww, a pigeon in the window… Owls can’t come here. Mamma that was not a Kite, it’s an eagle… can eagles see in the dark?” (I had told her owls could eat pigeons and other birds, that is why they needed to settle down before dark, didn’t realise it would worry her.)
“No Eagles and Kites can see very well but not in the dark.” (I am typing as she speaks…)
I had forgotten kids talked like this, hopping from one subject to another 🙂 There is so much to say!
“I want a surprise. Mamma children like surprize! You can give me a surprise, okaaaay?”
“It can’t be a surprise if you know about it…” (still typing 🙂 )
“Her name is Dorothy and her name is Elizabeth. Her name is not Dora.”
Finally we found some fabric, got out scissors and fabric glue and made our own clothes. Now all the dolls in the house can be seen wearing amazingly creative outfits, from sarees to off shoulder dresses, all unstitched, and all in the same dark pink 🙂
Should have taken some pics! Will take and share when they are dressed up next 🙂
Edited to add: For now here’s a hairstyle,
