Our Own Annie Oakley
So, my dad got Abby this pop gun from Cabela's for Christmas and she was immediately enamored with it (I wonder if the fact that Dad had soldered her name into it added to her affection?). For some reason, she took on this weird posture and facial expression each time she would go "hunting". After a while, she added the Mickey Mouse ears and now cannot use the gun without the ears. Also, I have to call her "Hunter Mickey" when she's in full garb. Of course, all of her preschool friends loved it as well and we immediately had to set forth certain rules. #1 Do not shoot people... not even pretend ones... not even bad guys... no people! #2 Take turns. Believe it or not, number 2 was easier for them to follow than number 1!
