    I was kind of glad she grew out of barbie fast!!

    I really did like the article about how what you think you will be like as a parent vs how things actually turn out when the chips fall. Very cute!
    Yes, that is until all her itty bitty shoes, purses, accessories, bathing suits etc. etc. etc. end up in the Land of Lost $hit - like down the heating vents, crammed down between cushions, behind the dryer, under the bed or just ultimately in the garbage (which is where I tend to put little dolly bits and pieces that I find).

    DD got a Maplelea doll for xmas from Nanny and Granddad:

    Anybody ever have a Skipper doll? She was Barbie's little sister or cousin or something. If you twisted her arm she got taller and her boobs grew. Well, that was the version I had.

    Bahahahahahahaha. I think we talked about that Skipper a few years ago on this board. That's a hoot. I love the metaphor behind twisting her arm to make her grow up and become a lady (my Skipper was always a tomboy, so I picture all Skippers as tomboys who don't want to grow boobs and put on a party dress.)

    Did you know that they have a pregnant Barbie again? I guess they had one back in the 70's or so (my older coworker says she had one) and now she's back. I'm sincerely interested to know where the baby goes in and comes out, but I don't want to google it at work.

    PS - The negative reviews under the Pregnant Barbie are a hoot.

    I don't think having embossed underwear means Barbie has anything to hide, I think it's just to make dressing her up "more realistic" (as in, again, most of us wear underwear when we're dressed) without them having to make and provide little tiny Barbie panties.

    Her belly 'pops' off, and the baby is squished into her abdominal cavity. Then, when you take the baby out, a flat tummy springs up to replace it. I would say my only problem with this is its not very realistic. Where is my flat tummy spring?

    Oh, and we wouldnt want girls to think that pregnancy is OK......lol.......sometimes I wonder if people even re read what they have written.

    LOL! How aggravating! Yet another thing that Barbie has that I don't; the convertible, the Dream House, the various satisfying careers (veterinarian, astronaut, mermaid....) and NOW she has a flat tummy spring. Typical.

    I love the review about how our children don't need to have pregnancy glamorized. If your kid looks a Barbie and makes life choices based on this doll...you have a different kettle of fish.
