I was one of those children that peeked at her presents under the tree. No, I didn't just peek, I unwrapped and played with my presents. My brother Jonathan and I both did. (Hey, I see you, Jon! Stop trying to look all innocent!) We were truly awful. As the latchkey kids of a single mom, we had way too much unsupervised time in which to get into trouble. The crazy thing is, we were never caught! Even after we hopelessly tangled up our slinkies and had to act disappointed when we "unwrapped" them, Mom never caught on! I've told my children this story of my misdeeds and I always end the story with how much I regret my actions and how I wish I could go back in time and be a virtuous child.
Why am I telling you this? Because, apparently my sneaky inner child is healthy and well! I could not stand not knowing who Cissette's secret admirer is! I had to go poking about. I studied my StatCounter pages and noticed that I was getting visitors coming to me from a particular page on the Crafty Mamas forum. So, of course, I had to go register and take a look. What do I see there? A thread from dear sweet Dannielle, chronicling her good deed. It seems that the fun of the project needed to be shared and so she confided in her friends at Crafty Mamas since, you know, husbands don't always "get" the whole doll play thing. Now, this might have worked out well if only I had been smart enough to create a secret identity when I registered at Crafty Mamas, but nooooooo, I had to go and create the username "Bettsi". Within minutes of my discovery, I get a private message from Dannielle titled "Nosy much?" !!oh!! Talk about getting caught red-handed! I feel like such a heel! I ruined it for Dannielle and for me and, of course, for Cissette! Dannielle says we don't have to tell Cissette, but I don't know. She's pretty intuitive- I'll bet she knows already!
Thank you, Dannielle, for being so gracious to this undeserving peeker! I hope you'll still be my friend!
