Barbie, would you like some cheese?

Dr. Lucy got her first real Barbie doll this week, a gift from, of all people, her preschool teacher! (Good God, what are they teaching her there?? I shouldn't be surprised. This is, after all, the same place that refuses to recognize BOTH of her last names.)

Anyway, our conversation went like this:

Me: I think Barbie is tooooo skinny.

Dr. Lucy: No she's not!

Me: Oh yeah? I don't think she eats enough.

Dr. Lucy: Yes she does!

Me: What does she eat??

Dr. Lucy: Hmm.... carrots.

Me: Carrots? Anything else?

Dr. Lucy: Carrots!

Me: Yes, I know she eats carrots. Anything else?

Dr Lucy: .... and mushrooms. She eats mushrooms too!

Heee... I KNEW there was a reason for that waistline. My Princess got many Barbies as gifts when she came home from her Russian orphanage. I was confused to find them stuffed under her bed. She has NEVER liked dolls because they 'stare at her all the time.' LOL

This is so weird, one of my friend's day care providers got her daughter a Barbie. Who knew it was such a popular gift?

Have you ever seen the Barbie Loves Elmo one? That's the one my friend's daughter had. We spent a ridiculous amount of time heckling it. Far more than any group of grown women should spend on Barbie. It was so fun, and of course I ran home and blogged about it :) Ah, good times.

Is Barbie a carrot and mushroom-atarian? Maybe that's the key to developing tremendous...attributes :)
