Hey, sorry if a post like this already exists. I found a couple in search, but they were locked. Hopefully this is ok So when people talk about having kids and collecting BJDs, it seems like they're mostly focused on the bad, or on worries. Either collecting makes them feel guilty for not spending every spare dime on their kids, or having kids makes them nervous that their dolls will be neglected or broken. So I'm curious, does anyone else think there are benefits to having kids and dolls? For example, I have 2 girls, 2 years and 7 months old. Of course my 7 month old doesn't really know what's up, but my 2 year old loves dolls and I think my hobby benefits her because I know how to sew clothes for her dolls, fix them when they get broken or dirty, and I'm always eager to get her cute new dolls. Having her is great for me because I don't have to feel self-conscious about scouring the toy aisle anymore haha. Also sometimes I steal her doll clothes, which is how I now know that some Lammily clothes fit ResinSoul single-jointed msd. (And wellie wishers/glitter girls shoes fit, and Calico Critters clothes are a reasonably good fit on Pukipukis) Basically, I love having a little buddy who enjoys dolls as much as I do. Anybody else feel the same?
