Holly Baby7:44 AM
Holly Baby has been in my life for 44 years. I got her when I was two years old. My parents were in a Coast to Coast hardware store when I latched on to her and wouldn't let her go. My parents each told the other "I'm not going to take it away from her. You do it." Neither of them took her away and I still have her. She is a 1968 Vogue doll. She has a cloth body and plastic arms, legs and head. She has gone through countless body replacements. She traveled with me EVERYWHERE.
There was one incident when we had gone out to eat. My mom had taken me to the bathroom and my dad paid the bill and was heading to the car. He picked Holly up by her head and threw her under his arm, like a football. Some lady ran after him accusing him of child abuse. Imagine her embarrassment when she realized it was a baby doll. My dad still gets a chuckle from that one!
