Best Christmas Ever Part 2

When I was about 8, I got this exact doll. Thumbelina. She was 9" long and had a pull string in the back, that would make her slowly wiggle around like a newborn. I was old enough to take really good care of her. I was careful where I laid her, and wouldn't let anyone irresponsible pull her string, for fear they may jerk it or pull it too far out and get it stuck!!

One day I went to fetch Thumbelina, and to my horror, discovered someone (my young neice, who was a toddler at the time) had taken a blue ball point pen and scribbled all over her face and belly. Believe me when I tell you I had a melt down.

I've since forgiven my neice, who is now 42 years old. I guess it was karma's way of paying me back for ruining an autographed black and white photo of the Monkees, that belonged to my older sister.
