Maternal Instinct

June 3, 2010

In our local toy store Charlotte needed no encouragement to care for this baby doll.  I’d go so far as to submit that she is demonstrating maternal instinct.  On Tuesday she took the baby around the store in the shopping cart.  On Wednesday (yes, we went two days in a row!) she pushed her around in the stroller.  Then she put the baby doll up on her shoulder and patted her bottom!  Charlotte is only 11 months old, for goodness’ sake.

    Maggie and Charlotte are so in tune! Maggie adores the same baby doll and insists on putting her in the stroller, taking her out to put on her shoulder, kissing her, and putting her back in. Having never had a girl, I find this phenomenon amazing – I didn’t encourage this at all – it came purely from her!
