Some girls buy purses...

....and some buy Little People.
My latest speech therapy toy obsession is Fisher Price Little People. I am proud to tell you that I am 23 years old (and ten days!) and proudly scour Craigslist, Ebay, Facebook, friends who have children's closets for these little dudes.

I could write a whole book on how useful these sweet faces are in speech, and my clients LOVE them. I'm proud to tell you that I am the owner of the barn, an ark, a racetrack, and the adventure village....they're a little salty for a grad student's budget to buy brand new, and everyone loves them and therefore very rarely want to get rid of them. Oh the dilemma.....but like I said. I think there could be worse things to be crazy about! (Although they may be a bit more age appropriate...)

My birthday/spring break were too beautiful to talk about, and school hit me head-on today. Welcome back.
This has to be a short and shallow laptop is living on a single battery life until tomorrow. (No, I did NOT leave my charger cord at a Starbucks in Fort Wayne and I then had to have a friend pick it up for me and overnight it...see what I mean about hitting me head on?)

Hope that spring has sprung wherever you are! :-)


  1. Rachel, I love how you love the Little People and I can understand how they would be perfect for you! Have your seen What About Bob? I always think of that movie (which I love) when people use other things to talk for them. =)

    Where is your follow button??? I want to follow you and your cute blog but it isn't there. =(

    Please come visit me so I can find you again and follow you. =)

    It is my Spring Break this week and my birthday week too!

    I know it is hard going back but you get to love on those kiddos again! =)
