Whether it’s dolls or stuffed animals, Mary Virginia is always very, very busy arranging and preparing things. Her hands are always full, she is always rushing to pack her purse and runs out the door with it swinging against her shoulder.
One day as she was struggling to multitask, she handed me a doll and asked me to cram into a different doll’s swaddle. As I tried to contort it into the too-small swaddle, she said:
“Thanks. I have a lot to manage with two kids. You’ll see what I mean soon when your baby comes!”
