Happy Birthday Bekah!!
Bekah is five years old, and she and Eva decided that they would like to celebrate their birthdays, together, this year. Their birthdays are three days apart so they decided to split the difference. They want strawberry cake with strawberry ice cream, with strawberries and whip cream on top! Maybe they like strawberries...Bekah wanted 4 "bobbies" (Barbies) and of course, her daddy got her five. I heard her whispering with her sister that she was going to ask for 4 so they could both have 2. Being a sweet Daddy, he got her the little miniature ones that are dressed like pretty princesses instead of the unrealistically proportioned ones that are dressed like... well, you can't even say what some of those dolls are dressed like. What kind of parent would buy those dolls dressed like.... It just mystifies me. And then they wonder why their 11 year old is acting a bit too old for her age... OK, end of rant, It just doesn't seem right to see children or their toys dressed in ways that an adult should be ashamed of dressing... Really, end of rant. I never had this problem with GI Joe! Everyone teases the girls that they better brace themselves for their courting days 'cause with five older brothers, it isn't going to be easy!!
