I had a baby doll when I was 12 while other girls were suffering assault

But I hid it because I knew you were not supposed to still like baby dolls

They came out with this doll the Christmas I was 12 years old that had a light sensor in it and cried when you turned out the light. You could make the baby stop crying by giving it a bottle or pacifier.
