American Girl Doll - Rebecca

So Friday night, I left Keith hm with Drew and Carli to take Ava to her tball practice. Apparently Carli discovered the American Girl catalog and Keith very helpfully put her on their website. He said she was entertained for the whole two hrs I was gone. In those 2 hrs, she added $700+ to her "cart." When her daddy told her that was a bit much, she very proudly got it down to $414! So, this weekend amid the softball games and practices Carli kept dreaming about her American Girl dream cart.

Enter opportunity to teach a very important lesson, sometimes you don't have to buy new to get what you want. We found an American Girl doll for $50 on one of the swap pages. Tonight we emptied her piggy bank and counted out almost every single bit of money she had to get her $50 so she can buy her first American Girl doll. She is so excited!


It turned out the lady we bought the doll from was the nurse for my OB when I was pregnant with Carli!  When I apologized for sending so many coins to pay for the doll but explained why, she was so generout and sent more than just the doll home!
