Parent to Parent With another gift-giving season approaching, my youngest daughter, Haylee, has been hard at work making sure that her wishes are known. What she really wants this Christmas is a pet of her own – either a dog or a kitten will do, but her first choice would be a West Highland White Terrier. The first problem with that plan is that we already have five dogs and cats living in the house. David has two cats — one is his, and he’s been watching another “for a friend” for over 6 months now. Hanna also has a kitten, and then the two dogs, one of which was originally adopted for Haylee, both insist on “belonging” to Daniel.

Which leads to the second problem with that plan, which is that animals do have minds of their own. Even if we did decide to increase the pet count in our house to match the people count, there’s no guarantee that a new pet would actually bond with Haylee, and Daniel might just end up with a third dog!

So far, the results of our nudging are inconclusive. She has narrowed it down to two dolls that she would like, and she has expressed an interest in lots of new clothes and accessories for the dolls she has. But she also is still regularly talking about how badly she wants her own pet. Maybe a day trip over to Orlando can push her over the edge!

So we have been trying to guide Haylee toward some other options. When the latest American Girl catalog showed up the other day, my husband jumped into action. After all, Haylee really enjoys the two American Girl dolls that she already owns, and the catalog does always inspire a significant amount of excitement when it arrives.

Until next time,

Jennifer

So at her father’s suggestion, Haylee has spent the past few days looking through the catalog, highlighting the clothes and accessories that she likes, and agonizing over which doll she would choose if she had the chance to get another one. They’ve also talked about visiting the store in Orlando on one of the Saturdays in December. We’ve done that a few times over the years, and Haylee loves looking through the store and eating a snack in the bistro.
