Might be a nice surprise--it probably doesn't happen to her much anymore. Sure, sure, there's no way you left it to the last minute. You're not one of those kids. You definitely already got a card for Mother's Day.
Not. We've all been there: scrambling to make a sucky Mother's Day card at the last second, scribbling furiously as you hear mimosa glasses clinking in the next room.

As children, dolls can be physical manifestations of our most intimate fantasy worlds. We can develop entire histories and personalities for our dolls, and they can help us to navigate the adult world. As we grow, we similarly idolize and identify with authors and fictional characters. The women writers whose work survives to today remind us that we’re not alone, that another woman somewhere understood our feelings about being human beings and about being women. Read More
