It happens to every mom sooner or later--your child turns from cuddly toddler to standoffish teen, and the days of snuggling over a book, the TV, or a long conversation are gone. What's a mother to do?
Well, if you are Marieke Voorsluijs, a textile designer from the Netherlands, you knit a life-size doll that looks A LOT like your son.

The Dutch mom's explanation? She wanted to bridge the gap between her son's needs to have his own space and HER need to "smother him with love." So she came up with this idea, and spent two months making it. Her son even helped with the project--he loved the idea.
Voorsluijs called the project her "tribute to puberty." No word yet on whether she's still cuddling with it!
