What's wrong with this picture?
How many moms instantly saw this potentially heart-breaking disaster?! Look closely...
Yeah... Oh, poor kid, poor frog... Poor mom! I'll never forget what I went through the day Katya accidentally dropped her BELOVED rag doll (which I quickly learned was no longer made and impossible to replace) in Manhattan and I frantically retraced my steps to find it... It was spotted in a gutter by another mother who imagined the desperate child who might have lost it. She lifted it out and gave it to the shopkeeper nearby. Amazingly, I found it.
A year later, my mom spotted a brand-new version of the rag doll and we were elated to then have a "spare." Katya's first doll was literally falling apart by then, too. Katya, however, took one look at it and declared that she wanted nothing to do with it. "So, what? You're going to replace her because she's old? Is that why you had another baby?" (Natalia was a few weeks old). Gulp. The old baby and new baby happily co-existed from that day on.
