My "Red Ryder BB gun" — is a Baby Alive doll (by Kenner™ circa 1979ish)

O' sweet little love    
lifelike, were those lessons    
that now... ache my womb

For Cold_Fusion's Short and Sharp comp.
I can still smell her little plastic powder scented body and feel the unmitigated joy, seeing her under the Christmas tree. I promptly took her for show-and-tell once Christmas break was over. I was totally one of those little girls that absolutely loved baby dolls. Once grown, I assumed that having children would always be so easy peasy, never second guessing it. Life definitely has it's own ideas and a way of not working out like little girl dreams, imagined.
