I stated it just last month but it bears repeating: I've given into the entire Barbie phenomenon and bought my kid the one item she begged for consistently. Barbie is in the house.
It's been painful, but as I said a few weeks ago, that little bitch inspires my daughter's imagination and makes her happy so how can I deny that? Everything in moderation with regular reality checks and I figure it won't warp her body image too much (right? RIGHT?)
Anyhow, despite my reluctant acceptance I still prefer seeing Barbie in the following state...
Hacked up and turned into jewellery.
I don't think her disproportionate breasts have ever looked so good before. Why isn't Tiffany & Co. getting on this?
And this ring is just the awesome. Do you hear me? THE AWESOME.
And this necklace? WANT.
Now I have a strong urge to hack up my kid's dolls and have a crafting session.
But something tells me she won't go for it. That would be a #mommyfail of epic proportions.
