An Early Birthday Gift

A few months ago, my mom called to say that she had found some adorable Japanese dolls at an antique market. "But I cannot figure out who I could buy them for..." she said. Luckily I was there to suggest a very worthy person who was having a birthday in August. Me, that is.

I finally got to see them when I visited the rents two weeks ago. These dolls are so very tiny and delicate. Unbelievable craftmanship. They seem to be made of wood and fabric, with removable heads.

I decided not to take them home with me just yet because I was afraid they would get damaged in transit. It was probably a wise decision, as my dad kept hinting that I needed to let them stay for a while. And that I would be able to take possession of my birthday gift when they pass away. Nature or nurture, I am not sure which, but it is clear we all come from the same mold.
