Think Sindy and A.J. Can Be Friends?

  • Yeah, definitely. They just had a misunderstanding.
  • No way. A.J. doesn't deserve to be Sindy's friend.
  • Maybe if they both apologize for how they acted.

I love the clothes mommy makes for me. They're so soft and warm. They have funny little patches all over them. And They always smell clean, kinda like when mommy wipes the floor in her 'creating room' I'm not allowed to go in there. Anyway~ Mommy loves me alot, she let's me play outside, gives me hugs And LOTS of new clothing. I wish it came in different colors though. It's always pale, maybe a tan, like wood. Sometimes really dark, like chocolate. Once I got a shirt that looked like cream! I asked mommy if I could have a pink shirt. But she said no. Cause her fabric can't be dyed. I understand that. And still love my mommy very much. The only thing that bothers me is the screaming I hear when she makes them.
