Every Wednesday, I go to my daughter’s house to watch my granddaughters when they get home from school. It used to “baby-sit” but now they are in school. Often, I feel that they view me as the one needing care, especially if I have a migraine.
My husband works near my daughter’s house, so he and I drive up together; he drops me off in the morning. Then, in the mid afternoon, we pick up the girls.
This means that I spend a lot of morning time at my daughter’s house. I use her computer, check email, read the paper, write, watch TV, or even do some light housework. In the course of my time here, I have learned many things about my ‘little girls’, but will share just one observation.
Those buxom babes are stripped naked and scrubbed clean whenever the girls take baths. Then they lie in sun-bathing nakedness to dry.
Lately, Mattel has been incorporating clothing as part of the Barbie construction. Nothing major, just a built-in bikini or leotard. Why they started doing this, I don’t know, don’t really care.
Since the Barbie has only pretty firm boobies as a sex indicator, I wonder if this move was part of the costuming. If you have had a girl who dresses her Barbie multiple times a day, in a variety of cheaply-made-but-flashy-dresses, then you realize that parts of those dresses are all over the house (especially the shoes, those stupid high heels that never stay on, and tend to get sucked up in the vacuum in nothing flat).
