Here's the link to that video in case you feel the need to better understand my childhood and you have a spare 5 minutes or so that you'll never get back. If you decide that you would rather not watch the crazy chocolate woman babbling over-dramatically about her childhood issues (though now I've made you curious, haven't I?), I can sum it up for you.
My parents did not buy me a Barbie doll...ever. *gasp* They did buy me (the supposedly favored eldest daughter) a Skipper - Barbie's short, flat-chested little sister. BUT, they bought my sister 2 different Barbies and a Ken doll! Shocking! Anyway, I've never gotten over it and my sister's Kissing Barbie's pretty pink floral dress is burned into my memory.
My friend Katie was well aware of my video and er, issues. She knew just what to do - she got me the perfect Christmas present!
YES!!! I am now the proud owner of a very cute and glittery Barbie doll! Thank you! I feel that some bitterness has just melted away - LOL! Hey sister's old Kissing Barbie - see that tiara and heart-shaped handbag? That's MY Barbie...uh-huh,YEAH...that's right.
Wow - childhood issues resolved. Well, one of them anyway. One of many. Hmmm...I wonder if a friend would be willing to get me a Big Wheel??
Did you have Barbies? And did you have a favorite? And do you have childhood issues like me? :)
Have a marvelous Monday!
