Weird Obsession

One day last week Mimi, my 6yo, was sick and stayed home from school. Because she was home I couldn't watch The Walking Dead while running on the treadmill. I was stuck watching Dr Phil instead. I hate Dr Phil. He was talking to people with weird obsessions and one of these people had an obsession with life like baby dolls called Reborn dolls. Creepy.

Now Mimi is completely obsessed with real life dolls. She searches utube, makes wish lists and talks constantly about them. She has even made her own video and asked that I put it on utube. Yes, it's that bad.
Did I tell you that I hate Dr Phil?

Do you know anyone that has a weird obsession?

Ok, I admit that one day I walked through a shopping centre pretending a doll was a real baby but that's another story.

    1. She seems to know everything about them. I took her to a baby shop and she ran rings around the sales assistant.

  3. I used to like collecting puppets which started when I was a small girl putting on shows for patient parents and friends. The marionettes on display scared my daughter(and my closest friend agreed with her) so I packed them away.

  9. I saw a story on that on one of those weird obsession shows on Foxtel, it is creepy, and like everyone else has said, they are freaky!

    Is there anything more annoying than not being able to watch your show while on the treadmill. I swear, if it wasn't for IQ I would never go on the treadmill! And even then I have to wait until the munchkin is in bed. Its Walking Dead night for Dave and I tonight. We have even timed the cooking of our dinner so it will be ready after the munchkin is in bed and we can eat slow-cooked lamb in front of the tv like we did in our pre-kid days!
