How embarassing

Today was the 100th day of school. The children had a "100" project to do, where they had to put 100 somethings into a bottle, the wrap it up and give clues to the other children to try to guess what was in the bottle.

So the middle kid comes up with the brilliant idea of putting 100 Barbie shoes into her bottle. "Oh, that's a great idea. I'm sure you don't have a hundred, though. We'll count."

So we counted. And counted. And counted. Um. Yeah. We stopped at 125. But there were still more. HOW did she end up with so many Barbie shoes?

My daughters did not have Barbies because I believed Barbies promised something they would never have, namely an enormous bust. Or sexy clothes. I never thought of the Imelda factor. Another reason to ban Barbies!

She has to have that many shoes. To match the equally insane number of outfits she has.
Does this stuff multiply at night while we sleep?
Ours isn't Barbies, it's Polly Pockets, but same idea.

What a smile all those cute little shoes brought to my face!!

What a creative little middle child with such brillant ideas!!

Oh, how deprived we were...

Something wrong happened, though. Didn't get Barbie and the big bust or the great shoes... got Skipper and big feet instead! Thanks, green.barn (love you anyway)! These fiveberriesintx kids are sure lucky to have great Barbies (and normal feet)!
