While they might be easily influenced by their peers, Ed and I are not so quick to fall prey to their desires. We decided a long time ago, that we would make every effort to purchase items that sparked imagination and would be played with for longer than three minutes and not found later on with their head missing.
Speaking of missing heads, in case you forgot, my Barbie met with a tragic fate and we weren’t sure how Artemis would take to the fashion icon. Just to make sure that she was going to play with her like she said she would, we insisted that she use her own money to buy her first Barbie doll. She can add that to her list of things that she’s mad at us about when she turns 13.
Turns out that her love was not short lived.
Barbie gets a lot of attention in our house, not only from her but also Max. They love to set-up house for Barbie complete with fridge, oven, food, utensils and even two toilets! They create, imagine and work together as a team to ensure that Barbie’s needs are met. As a parent, I couldn’t be happier.
