When I bought my daughter her first cabbage patch doll, I wasn’t aware of what childhood memories would come rushing back to me.
Just the smell alone triggered memories of playing cabbage patch dolls with my cousin and fighting over why she got the blonde doll and I got the brunette doll, and other times when I carried my doll around everywhere and fed it fruit and veggies.
The cabbage patch doll smell is just something that stays with you, you know? They all have that baby powder scent that I think all girls (and mothers) love.
Why is it that they have to smell SO good?
I hope that Rylie loves the smell just as much as I do, and will remember memories of playing cabbage patch dolls with us when she has a daughter of her own to give one to.
