Where did I come from?

Oh you are so small and cute Alicia cooed as she rocked the tiny one.

The little blond toddler looked up at Alicia and asked, "Where did I come from?"

Surprised, Alicia began to explain. "Well, at the edge of the forest there is an old log. It has been shaped by the winds over the years. The old woman here says that you and the other Raindrop Kids sprouted after a long hard rain."

"Is that where all of those noisy babies came from that are here?" she asked.

Alicia laughed and said, "Why yes, they did. Early this morning I went out with the old lady, as she calls herself and found that the light rain had caused them to sprout. there were all different kinds, red and yellow, black and white."

"But they are so much littler than me," the toddler said.

"Yes, they are, they are babies. They didn't grow on the stump as long as you did. They need extra care. Some of them aren't as tall as an AA battery" Alicia said.

As the toddler ran off, Alicia watched the babies and smiled.

Alicia knew these Raindrop Babies were going to go to homes that had time to love them all. She was glad that she was watching the babies while the others were at the Mad Hatters Tea Party.

She was around when they drug in three days after it started. Jenny was muttering something about carrot juice punch and she showed Alicia the photos of the strange get together.

Alicia knew that the first of the babies was already listed for adoption online
and more would soon follow.

Alicia was carved by Connie Hardt who goes by iamstonedragon on Ebay.

Why can't someone love me?

Mary Grace thought on what Miss Viola Hickory had been telling her about how she must be nice or no one would ever love her enough to adopt her. She thought that Viola didn't know what she was talking about, after all she was a nuthead.

Mary Grace knew she just needed the right dress for someone ot pick her instead of those Raindrop Kids everyone wanted so badly.
Mary Grace went to the great Hitty clothes closet and began to try to find the dress that would make people love her.

"Hmmm, this is a possibility," Mary Grace said as she twirled around.

"You look all grown up in that," Robin said.

"Then this won't do. I want to look cute and young like all those Rainbow Kids our carving Mom is making and putting up for adoption." Mary said as she tossed the dress to the floor and then threw a shawl on the floor too nearly hitting Robin.

"They got adopted because they were nice!" Nicole said as she walked by.

"Oh that would look better on me."
"You can't do that." Nicole cried.

"Oh yes I can and I did!"
"Hey I......"

"Miss Hickory!!!!!!" she ran off yelling.

"Mary Grace, get dressed and we will talk" Miss Viola Hickory said.

Mary got dressed but sat and cried. "No one loves me. Even my carver Mom is more interested in carving a look a like doll for some guy."

Then she heard the words Miss Hickory had said before. "If you were nice someone would love you. You have to play nice with others if you want to have playmates."

"Oh man, she was right. I will ask Miss Hickory to list me as adoptable and I will play nice from now on." Mary said.

Preparing for a party
