We love to visit missions in California. The San Luis Obispo one that we visited on our trip was beautiful. At the mission gift shop, I was looking at the abundance of nativity sets while Bob was browsing around. He spotted these dolls. The explanation says:
“These worry dolls are symbolic of the folk art of Guatemala and Mexico. The legend is that when a child whispered their worries to their doll before going to sleep, the next morning their worries will be gone. What a simple way to ease their minds.”
Bob looked at me and asked, “Should we get them for our future baby?”
This has become the fifth thing that we have purchased for our future baby in the past four years. I love it that we don’t shy away from buying things for our baby and aren’t afraid of jinxing ourselves.
I can’t wait to give our baby stuff to our own child one day.
