I am always fascinated by how kids react to something new and how long it takes for their fascination to run out. So when The Bee received a Prince Eric doll at an early Christmas exchange and was immediately smitten, I started chronicling. For two full days he accompanied her everywhere, ate with her, slept with her and played with her. The photo of him on top of the TV is her attempt to prevent her sister from getting him. Unfortunately for Prince Eric Christmas day came and he lost out to the fascination of all the new things. Did your kids get a favorite holiday present? Was it the one you expected them to be most excited about?
