I recently had a very tender (though slightly odd) experience that had me wondering what moments any of you have had that involve your dolls. Here's my contribution: Ok so I'm living at home with the parents and finishing nursing school before I go ahead and move back to Houston. Recently I had a horrible experience at the dentist's office (ever had your tooth drilled without enough number and then had to have your nerve directly injected before the pain began to dim?) I had never had pain like that before in my life and I had to drive myself home still in pain. I don't hardly ever cry, but I was a sobbing wreck and I was shaking all the way home. When I got home my parents were shocked at first, then Mom moved into action. She went to the kitchen then came back with a dose each of Ibuprofen and Hydrocodone with a glass of water. I swallowed them and then she walked with me to my room and instucted me to go ahead and get some sleep (it wasn't yet 8 pm) I was still sniffling and leaking tears. She pulled the covers on my bed back while I took my shoes off. And when I got into bed, she covered me up then picked Torin up from his spot on my desk and placed him in the crook of my arm and told me he'd help me feel better. The whole thing was done very seriously and with love. It didn't matter that I am in my twenties and that I haven't been tucked into bed since I was 10. I was so touched by that, I just cuddled Torin closer and went to sleep. I woke up 2 hours later and realized my pain was gone. I kissed Torin and put him on my desk again. Then I went to the study where my parents were. I gave my parents hugs and thanked Mom for taking care of me. I'm so used to taking care of myself and I was a little embarrassed, but I was still grateful. Ok, so there's my story. More of a human story, but Torin was a big part of it for me. Kinda lame, but it meant a lot to me. So what about the rest of you?
