"Not A Human Being"

Last Sunday, helping Madison get her American Girl doll "Michelle" out of one outfit and into another.

We get the clothes off (we're finding that American Girl makes merciful use of velcro, it's actually quite easy for these little figures to move from a fancy party dress, to a sports uniform, to pajamas), and suddenly Michelle is down to her underwear.

I look at the doll, unsure how to proceed. Madison notices my uncertainty, hands me a miniature soccer jersey and says, "It's OK, Daddy, I don't change her panties every day, because she's not a human being."
