What My Girls Think of Barbie

We’re not really into Barbie but the girls and I were picking up some hula hoops at Toys R Us and one of my girls wanted to visit Barbie’s Dream House.20120205-221144.jpg

I liked seeing all the professions a girl could choose for her Barbie, including architect and art teacher.20120205-222922.jpg

As we were walking out of the store onto Times Square, one of my daughters said, “You know Barbie is never shown as homeless, so it’s not really real.”

My other daughter said, “Real girls are never perfect and perfect girls are never real.”

And just for a moment, with a hula hoop over my shoulder, I felt like I was doing pretty well as a mother of girls.
