I was pleased to read the article by Patt Morrison in today's paper on the "Instant Infant." I, too, purchased my "baby" in sheer defense against all the new parents around me. Since the baby even looks like me, I brought him to work and put him on my desk--the ultimate baby picture.
My husband and I have fantasized about having pictures done at K mart to send home to the family, complete with announcements of an adoption. We would, of course, only accept cash gifts for the little tyke's college education. The possibilities are endless. Now I can be a DINK (Double Income, No Kids) and still have it all.
