You Should Probably Just Let Your Children Have Dolls

Posted By on Tue, May 31, 2011 at 2:00 PM

A cautionary tale: one moment of fury-based parenting and then you have an adult daughter with house full of too many dolls to count.


"My sister's doll had blonde hair and mine was a brunette, and I wanted the blonde-haired doll, so we were fighting in the back of the taxi. When we got out of the cab, my mother took both dolls, broke their heads off, threw them out, and said, 'You will never have dolls again.'"

[The Hairpin]
