Michelle's Field of Dolls

familyAs the baby of the house prepares for her first day of kindergarten next week, it's time to check in and see what she's up to these days. She loves to sing, she's more articulate than I am and she's created this strange fantasy world for her many dolls.

The other night I came home from ball and she was already asleep. Her bedroom was a field of dolls, and each one was nestled lovingly in pieces of clothing Michelle had taken from her chest of drawers.

As I saw these dolls all over her floor and bed, I noted how Michelle herself had snuggled up into one corner of her bed so as not to disturb her people. I couldn't believe how intricate the sleeping arrangements were, so I grabbed my camera and took a few shots.

These pictures, from Michelle's Field of Dolls, were taken in the dark, but with the flash they came out pretty good. As far as kindergarten is concerned, this girl is ready.

Hayley used to do the exact same thing. She still does but not just that many. 2 or 3 is usually the limit.
