“My dolly she can sing, sing. My dolly she can dance, dance!” 1


LittleN for the past few weeks or so has been attached to a little baby doll that we have had lying around in the toy box for who knows how long. Thanks to the training of LittleE, the baby ended up with with the name of “Boba Da”: a mixture of Boba Fett and Baby Doll. I’m not sure how Number One Son got latched on to Boba Fett but his kindergarten class is a hotbed of Star Wars and Lego Star Wars activity (at least the boys, “all the girls” are into Winx – so he tells me.) So there you go, a cross between a little baby with a bottle and a giggle when you press its tummy and a Mandalorian bounty hunter who only had like six or so lines in all six movies – not including a scream of course. And the only one LittleE has seen is the one where Boba appears for two seconds and then disappears. It still amazes me how much they learn from each other.


1 The title comes from the song, “My Dolly “, from Woodie Guthrie’s Nursery Days album
