[QUOTE="ruadisneyfan2;48553981"]

Yes, it's one thing to have a doll collection but to buy & pack all of that real infant stuff takes it above & beyond that "just for fun" level. Real binkies, real toys, real clothes, shampoo, etc. Really, that's all so time consuming. Plus all of the continuous pretending. It gets weird.

She says she took them to the "day care nursery". I wonder what the CMs there thought.

I'm sad for her mother. If that were my grown daughter I'd be crying for her. Not to mention wasting my cruise time to hold a doll & discuss it endlessly on video. I guess she's not married but seriously, what man would put up with all that & still find her attractive (not talking physically). I wonder what a psychologist would think of this.

I watched another video she made where she said all of her other babies and HER MOM'S babies were staying at home with "Grandma" this trip and only the twins were going. Sounds like mom does this too!!

Her mother has her own "babies." All of the others were left at "great grandma's." The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

And why would a young woman this age rather be in her room at night, feeding and putting dolls to bed, than be out in the clubs having fun???

I wouldn't even have wanted to take one of my own kids on a cruise when they were babies....total waste of money TO ME (so don't flame me) and a waste of time having to be in the room with them so much.
Disturbing. I thought I spotted an engagement ensemble on her hand during video two. I was surprised to see the mom playing along. My goodness.... I'm not sure what to think. (I did also notice the bracelet on the baby's wrist which would be a choking hazard.)

Where does one even go about purchasing such an item and why do they make them? My mind is doing over time. I think I need to lie down. There was me thinking my collection of vinylmation was unhealthy....

Anyway, I can't stop thinking about it and why someone would put all that time, energy, and money into these dolls. All of those real diapers, formula, trash bags for their "dirty" diapers, etc in her diaper bag? My youngest DD is 5 and I am sooooo thankful not to have to worry about packing that stuff anymore (or buying it!).

It seems like she truly believes they are real, but I would have to think that she realizes this isn't "normal" behavior as she made certain that her face, and her mother's, were not on the video.

And I disagree with a PP. Based on the seriousness of the "getting ready" and the elaborate outfits, I am really thinking she DID bring those dolls to dinner.
There are a bunch of videos. Her and her mom were in one taking them down the hall. I just don't get it, it seems so strange to me. I would be embarrassed. To each their own I guess.

Too bad these babies aren't like the ones the middle schoolers bring home for home ec class. I'll never forget my daughter saying "I'll do it, I'll do it!" Then "here, I have to go the bathroom" or me waking her up at 2:30 am as she's sleeping through the crying. Honey, wake up... "WHAT, LEAVE ME ALONE~!" LOL.

Too late for me to. Resistance is futile; you will be assimilated.

Those babies aren't cheap either. Being is expensive though still not as expensive as being a parent.

I know! Where there is a need there is somebody willing to exploit it and get rich. I am sure re expense of being a parent. We own dogs and they are a joy but very expensive. They do have the bonus though of you can put them in kennels when on vacation. Not sure you are allowed to do the with kids lol..

So tempting to comment on the "doll" discussion, but I will just have to let that one go....

Mine is in the unexpected category. Years and years ago my dad got a "great" deal on a Dolphin cruise. He had his own business at the time so a big group from his office went along with our family. DH and I were newly married. Anyway, once aboard we discovered that the reason the deal was so good was that we were filling the unsold cabins for a special reunion cruise, for some apparently very popular South American pop music groups from the 70's. ALL the entertainment was to do with these groups, according to their contract nothing could go on unless it had to do with the reunion. So we watched several shows that consisted of screaming Spanish women singing along to their favorite songs from 15 years earlier! We still had fun but it was a very different experience.

The ship was so small, DH and I had little twin beds in our room. No option to put them together so we just had to hold hands across the 1 foot gap between the beds! The ship bounced around like crazy, the first night was so rough that out of our group of 20 only 5 of us made it to the dining room. The rest were too sick to leave their cabins! One of the 5 was pregnant and when the first tray of food went by, she got up and ran out of the dining room with her husband on her trail. So we had a quiet dinner for 3 at our table for 10! The rest of the trip, the crew put single packs of dramamine out all over the ship so you could just grab a pack and hope for the best. It was quite the adventure!

Five lbs and 25 inches! Hmmmm.... maybe it's better she sticks to dolls rather than real babies... Its a little unreal to watch and listen to these videos.

Oh my! Tell me after this experience of sheer horror you must have braved it up to try another cruise! I assume so as you appear on the Disney Cruise line forum. how brave! I hope the next cruise was better! Lol re the South American music groups from the 1970's! I bet that was quite an experience! Not often you go on a cruise and lose weight lol. We had one cruise with a breakout of a virus. The last night the dining room was empty. But that's a whole different story... I thank Disney for it's constant use of gloves with its CM and giving us that anti bac liquid going into the dining rooms!
