I gave my mom a baby for her 80th b-day this past weekend. She had the most fun when she was able to trick my aunt and uncle.
First, she bought my aunt into her bedroom, telling her I had adopted a baby recently. She believed her because I had wanted more children but had 4 miscarriages so I only have my son, whom I love dearly. The baby was on her bed, in a diaper, tummy plate exposed, partly wrapped in a blanket. My aunt thought she was beautiful and said we should have told her, she would have bought her a hand knit dress. My mom finally got her to touch her, and she finally realized it was a doll.
Then she got my uncle, who looked at the baby carefully and thought she was pretty, but he started talking to me very seriously, saying how he knows I have the heart to care for another child, but that I really shouldn’t because of my health. He went on and on and I finally had to tell him she was a doll. He didn’t believe it.
Now my aunt wants one…
Then, my step dad’s sister went over and insisted on dressing the baby.
My mom is enjoying herself.
