You brought WHAT home????

In Amanda's Child Development Class at school, they're required to bring home "a baby" for 3 days. They have a choice of either picking it up Monday and taking it back Thursday....or from Friday to Monday. Amanda decided to bring it home for the weekend shift, because she didn't want to take care of it during school (some teachers aren't real tolerant of it). The weekend she brought it home was the football play-off game up in Snohomish. Since she's in the band, she went to the game and had to take it with her. On Sunday, it went to church with her and she also had her college interview with the Stake President.

Whenever it cried she had 2 minutes to figure out what it "wanted". She had a bracelet with a sensor on her wrist and she had to pass it over the dolls tummy so that it knew she was the "mom". If she couldn't figure out what it wanted in that 2 minute time-frame, it would stop crying and her grade would go down. The first night it cried every 2-3 hours. The second night it cried every hour.

By the time Monday morning came she was exhausted and sleep-deprived.

Ahhh......welcome to "motherhood"!!
