A Strange Family

This morning, I put fresh batteries in KatyBeth's baby doll (it's the kind that says, "mama", and general baby babbles). This delighted my soon-to-be-three year old, who has been walking around cuddling the doll ever since, proclaiming (as one would expect) that she is the baby doll's mama. Lily is also fascinated with the doll, smiling whenever it babbles, and often reaching for her. In an unsurprising addition to the game of pretend, the baby doll's mama declared Lily to be "the baby doll's big sister". At some point, Kate explained to Lily that "the baby doll's big sister's dada is at work", so apparently, Arazyr maintains his identity as Lily's father. I have also been referred to as "the big sister's mama". My engineering brain immediately notes that the baby doll, and her big sister have different mommies. Ok, in this day and age, with the proliferation of blended families, that is perhaps not all that odd. Then, however, I was informed that I was the baby doll's dada. That's right - I am both Lily's mama, and the baby doll's dada. I'm still trying to figure that one out.

... today, Kate told Arazyr that he's the baby doll's big sister!
