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.


  1. Awww what a fun tale for grandparents and grand children alike. And how sweet she was to give up the fun of the tea sets and twinkies and cakes to care for the little ones. A lovely example, indeed, for this Mad Tea Party of 2011. Love to have you visit at :)

  11. I liked your tea party with the adorable, hand carved dolls and characters. I am in the middle of making three Izannah Walker reproduction dolls from Dixie Redmonds' Izannah Walker workshop on her MAIDA doll ning site. But I am equally interested in Hitty dolls too. Any of the vintage dolls that were more or less hand made are so charming.
    My Mad Tea Party is still posted and will be until this evening.
