Tonight, as Lorelei and I were cleaning up her room before bed, she said:
“Mommy, this Barbie is MAD.”
“Hmph,” I said without really looking up, “Why is that?”
“Because she’s blind. I blinded her.”
Puzzled, I looked up. Indeed she did. Apparently it wasn’t enough that mommy accidentally broke Barbie’s arm off in an effort to un-stick a suddenly-stuck arm. I have to give this to her, though: The kid is creative and resourceful, too. (She’s not allowed to have paint unsupervised (we don’t allow THAT level of creativity), so she wet a paper bead that we painted days ago and made the rubbed paint onto Barbie’s eyes to “blind” her.)
I really can’t help but be amused.
PS – Barbie might also be MAD because she’s wedding Barbie and that chick Ariel is now wearing her dress. I’d be pretty ticked if I was a one-armed naked blind barbie, too. Just sayin’.
