Brother Nicholas

“My father dabbled in ventriloquism. Apparently having four kids wasn’t enough. He kept his little friends in the closest and I told all my friends my dad played with dolls. Don’t worry, Nicholas, (the actual dummy pictured), got all of our hand me downs.”

Dummy Love

“What started as a joke Father’s Day gift picked up from a yard sale became our daughter’s best friend. She strolls him around in her baby stroller, sleeps next to him every night and insists he be tucked in with her.”
