Murderer!!!

I was not one of those children who liked to cuddle with dolls while I slept.  As a matter of fact, if there was a doll anywhere near me at bedtime, I would sling its ass in the closet or cover it with something.  I didn't want it looking at me while I was sleeping.  A child has to protect herself.    

In my eyes, all doll faces were creepy.  Especially the ones with the moving eyeballs.




I'd look at a doll with the most angelic face:

She doesn't look "stabby".

And see this:

He could take me in a fight. 

Eventually, I managed to find a snuggling alternative; I'd use pillows instead.  There are no eyes to stare at you, no hands with which to stab you in your sleep.   

I am 39 years old, still snuggle with pillows, and hope that that revelation doesn't make me sound too pathetic.  I've made another pillow from a sweater that I bought from the Goodwill.  I tried it out last night, and it works really well for snuggling.

And I'm still alive.

LOL! Thank goodness you found a suitable replacement for comfort, and that you can make it yourself is a bonus.

Another cute pillow, also a pillow cuddler. My guy has mentioned on too many occasions that I seem to have a love affair with my pillows. My mom still have a few of my sisters' dolls, none of mine, and so feel you on the doll issue...lol

My husband's mother and grandmother were doll collectors. We have already received a few for Rosina--luckily none of the super creepy porcelain kind yet, but it's only a matter of time. {shudder} They will be placed in a box facedown in the attic, with another heavy box on top of them.

Your niece is very smart.

Thank goodness, indeed! I'm on a quest to find a cashmere sweater to turn into a pillow. I want my head to rest in repurposed luxury lol.

I swear I don't know what happened to my dolls. I had a cabbage patch kid that I loved...until bedtime.

I must protect Rosina!
