The irony is, after having three boys in a row, I would've given anything to be able to buy just one baby doll. Now that our first grade little girl is begging for one though, I'm in shock.
How and why are American Girl dolls so expensive? What am I missing? Not only that, but our daughter has this whole world of American Girl dolls she's dreaming of for Christmas. Clothes, matching outfits, accessories...she knows the exact doll she's in love with and has talked of nothing else for weeks.
I was grumbling about it at work today, when my friend, Kelly mentioned today there's a 20% off code for Cyber Monday. (It's GIFT20 if you're thinking about one, too.)
For now, I'll sit at my computer and ponder. Is this a childhood wish that will be cherished forever, or will this be a phase that's not even worth getting into.
Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated, as I stare at this doll while she smiles and waves at me, tauntingly.
