I have been sitting on the floor for the last hour going thru a box of the girls’ barbie dolls, barbie doll clothes (which some were mine from the 60s. I found cabbage patch dolls and stuffed critters and Barbies, and Kens, one of the new kids on the block as well as Michael Jackson. Most are naked and have been for a good 10 years or more…As I was going thru the clothes, I wondered what went with who and thought.gee I wish I would have had the girls put the clothes back on them the last time they played with them….which would have been????
Then I got into a really heavy thought process about how things happen in our lives..things we don’t plan…things we take for granted…things we don’t know…do I have any idea the last time I played Barbies with Lennie Rae, Susie and Peggy..no of course not..do I wish I could remember it – yes…the main thing I remember is going over to Peggy’s house and having elaborate Barbie houses put together on the pool table and playing for hours…I loved the little carpet squares I got when a carpet business went out of business…The Barbie Dream House – the furniture..the shoes or should I say shoe because there was always one missing.
It’s even too late to encourage my kids to play and be kids …. the simple times they will never have again.
All this came from some Barbie Dolls and their clothes.
Until next time….
