I can explain...


There is a perfectly logical reason why this doll (ironically called My Friend Emily by Lamaze) is doing a nosedive into a detergent solution in my kitchen sink.

In this house, there's a good chance that the reason has to do with poop. And it does.

You guessed it (or maybe you didn't): David pooped on her face. He was playing with her, among other toys, when his diaper once again leaked beyond the depths of his outfit, onto the doll sitting next to him on the blanket. It's a terrible fate for a doll, if you ask me. Especially one who has been so loved by both of my children while they were very young. And she says "surface wash only" (she's got lots of crinkly extra parts), so what else was I to do? So I'm soaking her face in detergent. Poor, poor Emily.

I'm not sure what made me laugh harder - your story about poor Emily or the picture of her face down in the sink. :) --Susan

HAHA!

In our house, if it doesn't have a battery or a plug, it goes in the wash. "Surface wash only" is only true SOME of the time.

I would put old poop-face in the washer and risk her losing a bit of crinkleness, otherwise, you'll never trust her again....

Too funny! BTW - A lot of toys that say "Surface wash" can be safely washed in the washer on delicate. Just be sure to let it air dry.

I've always put them in a pillow case and either tied/safety pin it closed before washing. This helps to protect it in the wash. I've thrown everything in the washing machine unless it is electronic.
