This video is only 13 seconds long and reveals 4-year-old Lily’s amazing ability to easily fit through a door meant for a Barbie doll.
This is a Little Tykes dollhouse. I bought it at a garage sale for like $5 when Lily wasn’t big enough to play with dolls, so we used it to house her books for a very long time. We recently moved our girls in together and bought new furniture. There is no longer room for this giant dollhouse in either of our kid bedrooms, so we moved it to the basement. After we moved it out from the wall, Lily started repeatedly crawling through the door. It blew me away. She still only weighs in at 30 pounds at 4 years old despite our constant efforts to fatten her up, so I obviously knew she was thin, but this is ridiculous!
We asked Rose to crawl through the door and she doesn’t fit. Rose is actually pretty slim, but there’s no competing with Lily for thinness. We are glad Rose weighs more because it means less doctor’s lectures. It’s amazing not to have to return to the doctor on a regular basis for weight checks or defend yourself that you do, in fact, feed your child regularly. Anyway, even if Rose’s little toddler belly fit through the door (it doesn’t) her head is way too big for it! She’s tried both ways and has never been able to get anything but her legs through it. Of course, she wouldn’t cooperate on video for this experiment, but trust me, it’s true. Rose does not fit!
So, Lily has this talent… for probably another year. Have you ever seen anything so crazy? Dr. Toy Warden and I were just in awe. Not that it’s actually a talent, but who knew that she would fit?
It’s actually kind of disturbing. But mostly entertaining! Until our next doctor’s lecture anyway…
