See where navel gazing gets you?

(Throwaway remark + navel gazing) x dredging up memories from childhood = impulse purchase on eBay

Aww! Impulse purchases = good for the soul. ;-)

I used to read a lot of Enid Blyton, but I don't think I've ever read this one.

I wrote an academic article once on dolls and the cultural belief that they foster maternal impulses (it was a useful way for me to work through that question myself! I do not have a maternal impulse either).

Great purchase... the joy of Ebay.

Like Annie, I re-read my childhood books, too -- but I don't have children to read them to!

I agree with you, Carolyn -- "mothering" dolls is no guarantee of a strong maternal impulse. I think the responsibility of caring for animals is far more likely to result in someone who is able to responsibly care for a child.

That's the sort of thing that begs to be bought and loved. Cherish it! ~Sharon J
