This picture is over a year old - but the only difference between then and today is M's hair! (no, it doesn't look much better today - but it's been cut... and maybe she looks a little older too) Anyway this set of houses and stuff has long been a favorite at our house - the shelf in M's room is packed with the village and she sure loves them. It was a mixed blessing when Fisher Price stopped manufacturing Sweet Streets over a year ago - luckily Santa and her Parents had foreseen this possibility and stocked up for the future... however this past Christmas was Sweet Street free - and it did not go un-noticed. Finally I was beginning to believe that contentment had set in when lo and behold we are walking through the aisles of Wal-Mart looking for a good friend gift under my ridiculously low limit of $8 (found something cute even though we're cheap) and there right in front of my eyes - and more importantly the eyes of my daughter - are "Go Anywhere Girls" which are just Sweet Streets re-vamped... same houses, same people... same stuff - but... of course they notice right away that we don't have the ice cream truck or the school bus! Ugh - just in time for birthday wishes 'eh? I know, I know... but I've never been good at drawing lines, hopefully my girls will grow out of these before they release some mansion!
