The way we play

My brother recently texted me a photo of a wooden critter playset and asked if I had something similar to that when I was little. I affirmed for him that I was the proud owner of many Sylvanian Families: Skunks, foxes, bears, squirrels - I had them all (thanks, Mom!). I adored these woodland, hard-working creatures and their…

The Kim K Barbie

I'm a recovering Barbie-addict. I played with them until I was like 16, and I still would if I didn't have all boys. I'm a little burnt out on trucks, pirates and Spiderman, so anytime we're at someone's house and they have little girls, I'll immediately wonder if they have Barbies. I even have a method:

  • I'll make eye contact with the girl. Whether she's across the room or simply in the seat next to me, eye contact will be…

My Love Affair with Mr. Darcy

I remember that afternoon at the office water cooler. Two of my co-workers were discussing their summer reading lists. I jumped in to the conversation by admitting I couldn’t remember the last time I had read a book and I was curious if they had any recommendations.

When I was growing up, if I didn’t have a Barbie in my hand, I had a book. Yes, I was that kid. It started with an encyclopedia…

Drugs, Theft, and Bad Things Little Girls Do

I’ve already confessed to forgery. But I’ve done other hard crimes too.

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me or reads this blog that Barbies were an important part of my childhood. Not in a BFF kind of way, but more in a drug addict kind of…

I was a Barbie Girl

My sister is 4 years younger than me. When we were just kids, those 4 years felt more like 40. We were, and remain to this day, total opposites. I’m reserved, she’s outgoing. I play it safe, she takes risks. I like books, she likes being active. I’m girly, she’s a tomboy. But growing up in rural Pennsylvania gave us few options for playmates. We had no choice but to get along or be alone.

Opposites or not, we could always get along long enough to play Barbies.

Our evenings and…

The Princess Movement

When I had my first daughter, I vowed to never ever subscribe to the ever popular princess movement!  I have been against it through and through.  The whole princess thing has been a pet peeve of mine. It brings to mind images of obnoxious, entitled, spoiled little girls.

I have to tell you though that I… Continue

Headless Dolls, Early Flights And I'm Out of Coffee

Well today should be a challenge. Husband O' Mine had to take an early flight to The Big Island this morning. He had to be there around 5:30 am. We're a one car family and therefore all three little ones had to pile into the car with their blankets, PJ's and about a dozen stuffed animals.

Everything went well, and I made it back in record time. But forget about getting back to sleep. I have too many dolls to complete today. Most… Continue
