So with almost everyone being uncomfortable with Tyler getting a doll, he doesn’t want one any more!
Yesterday I asked Tyler if he wanted to look at dolls on the computer to see what type he wanted. So we started looking, and he asked, “Will I sleep with my dolly?” “Sure, honey, if that’s what you want.”
“No! I don’t want to do that, I want to sleep with my Eeyore!” “Then you don’t have to sleep with your doll.”
He started to cry. I said, “Tyler, you don’t have to sleep with your doll, you can get a little cradle, that’s a little bed, for her.”
“No, I don’t want a doll any more!” “Are you sure?” “Yes, I don’t want a doll any more!”
I’m not quite sure what exactly changed his mind. Maybe he’s thinking his friend’s baby sister is not all she’s cracked up to be.
Anyway, score 1 for Eeyore.

Emily Cullen is a pen-name.
I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system.
I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills.
In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
