Daily Prompt: Prized Possession

LDescribe an item you were incredibly attached to as a child. What became of it?

To see a picture of Mrs. Beasley, follow the link below:


My mom purchased this doll for me when I was starting the first grade in 1970. She bought this doll for me because I started wearing glasses at age 3. Mrs. Beasley wore glasses and was my best friend for years.

Mom thought this doll would ease my anxiety of being the only kid at school with glasses. Kids can be mean. Sounds like that is one thing that hasn’t changed in 40 years.

I remember at some point during my childhood, Mrs. Beasley received a haircut and a makeover. I painted huge eyelashes on her big eyes and put bows in her hair.

When I first discovered Ebay, a lady was looking for a Mrs. Beasley doll to redo for her daughter. I sold my prized possession for $100.00. I hope she went to a good home.

Today, I still have my Drowsy doll and the first doll I ever owned. They are packed up around here somewhere.
