On a little trip my family took recently to Helen, GA., we found ourselves near Cleveland, GA. Nine miles to be exact! This is the home of the BabyLand General Hospital---where Cabbage Patch Kids are born.
Here is Baby Dream and Girl London with my preggers sister-in-law.
Here is Baby Dream pulling a new baby right out of a cabbage patch.
Now pay attention!!!!! This is the MAGICAL TREE and special CABBAGE PATCH where a nurse assists births when you are there---it's a big production.
Obviously, the girls adopted some kids... Courtesy of Grandma. Here is the family for the official ceremony and stuff.
There was this one doll who looked like she really needed a family. I think she's been waiting a long time for someone to take her home :(
(She's actually wearing a pretty sweet vintage 70s Hang Ten tee and badass psychedelic print skirt.)
Nowwwwwwwww for a flashback!!!!
I am originally from Atlanta and moved to Florida when I was about 12, but with so much of my family there, I ended up creepin' around GA a time or two.
My mom and dad had taken me to Babyland when I was a kid and one day when X-man and I were (most likely) on our way back home from Thanksgiving with my family in Helen... I spotted BabyLand.
I vaguely remember driving by and seeing the Babyland sign and being like, FUUUUUCK! We must stop here! You must witness this!! (It's free BTW.)
And X-man being like whaaaaat???? (Because it's honestly hard to really understand until you go.)
It used to be different, less fancy, a little crappier, but still very magical!
Circa: 1993 or thereabouts
Trust me, we could of NEVER predicted two decades and two kids later back at BabyLand!
I'll leave you with this:
Love & Light,
