The Barbie Doll-ar Question

| Children, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

(I have just bought my five-year-old daughter her first Barbie doll.)

Me: “You know, I wasn’t sure about getting you a Barbie doll.”

Daughter: “Why?”

Me: “Well, some people say that girls end up thinking that Barbie is the shape that real women should be. But you wouldn’t think something silly like that, would you?”

Daughter: “No, Mummy, I’ve seen you!”
