Today I was carrying Ava in a sling at Costco with Ella in the cart. I heard a couple talking about us:
Man: I'm telling you, it's a real baby.
Woman: No no, it's a doll.
Man: Why would she be carrying a doll around in a sling?
Woman: It's her daughters doll.
Couple: Oh my goodness!
Then the couple came over and cooed over Ava in her sling, and Ella burst into wild tears over the lack of attention. A free sample of potato chips remedied her mood, and we arrived home with a giant box of Ella diapers, four tomato plants, a flat of strawberries, a big bag of frozen chicken, and a bagged salad. Oh, and a doll in a sling.
