The Quest for Didi
Do you see the pink thing Violet is holding in her hand? That would be her Didi (What we think is Violet's attempt at saying Baby). Violet LOOOOOVES her Didi. If you see Violet these days, you see Didi. She loves her so much that we decided we needed to find a back-up Didi. At least one. My investigation took me to the internet. Manhattan Baby is what the tag on Didi says, so I checked them out. No more Didis. I learned recently that it was purchased at Marshalls. Last winter. I wasn't too optimistic that there would be anymore there this winter. So we continued to scour the internet. We looked at ebay. There recently was an auction for the blue equivalent of Didi that ended at $61.00. Some desparate parents obviously thought it was worth it. We didn't want to get to that point. We saw a ".pl" (polish maybe?) website that carried Didi. Duncan said no way. We also found one on a ".uk" website for 6.99 in pounds. We decided we'd buy several and sell a couple on ebay to pay for our shipping charges. (There's obviously a demand for them, right?) That seemed like a good idea. We then got a call from our friends that bought the original Didi. (We had shared our plight with them.) They had returned to Marshalls and found a Didi in the clearance bin for $2.00!!! That was the best option of all. So now we can all rest easy. We have a back-up Didi in the wings and we know there are some more in England and Poland should we need them in the future. I hope not.
