You all know that I have a little diva at home. She is 2 and thinks she runs the show. At times, she can be a terror, but I cherish every minute with her, even the "terrible 2" moments. Children grow up so fast, and I want for her and I to enjoy these early years as much as possible.
I want us to form a bond, a special bond beyond just the normal mother-daughter one. I also want to do everything I can to shape her into a confident, happy, strong, kind, trustworthy, mature person, now and as she grows.
I have been racking my brain over what to get her for Christmas this year. I want her gifts to be fun, but special and I want them to actually serve a purpose. My little girl loves dolls and I was kind of hesitant to get her another baby doll because she has so many, but when I saw the adorable Sleep With Me set from Nenuco, I fell in love and knew she would too.
Of course, the cradle can be used without a bed too, so she can bring it all over the house, which I know she will. There is even a nightlight that plays music. My daughter will love that. Anything musical makes her happy, and the fact that it's for her baby will make it even better.
The physical fun of this set is wonderful on it's own, but I really love that this kind of play helps to form character too. Caring for something teaches responsibility, compassion, love, diligence, respect, and more. There is really no limit to the lessons that can be taught when acting out motherhood.
Once I really gave it more though, I don't care how many dolls my little girl has, I am thrilled to get her more. I want her to learn all these values, and I want her to stay a child as long as possible. I am s thankful she is still asking for(expressing interest in) dolls instead of cell phones, money and expensive clothes.
If you have a little girl in your life for whom you want a fabulous holiday gift, I highly suggest the Sleep With Me set from Nenuco.
