Like most kids, H. has a favourite toy she absolutely adores.
It was a Baby Amore dolly she got for Christmas last year. This doll cries like a baby, then stops when she is fed her bottle or given a dummy. She even 'breathes', with her chest moving up and down, as she sleeps.
Of course, H's baby had to come to Auckland with her, and she's spent many happy hours carrying her around and fussing over her.
This is what Baby Amore looks like usually...
Then H. dropped her on the floor, and look what happened ...
And in case you missed it..
You can imagine the tearing of clothes, gnashing of teeth, and tears at our house! I don't think even Daddy's going to be able to fix this boo-boo. I've had some experience in mending broken hearts - but any hints on how to mend a broken neck?
