3 Word Sunday
We have done nothing this weekend. That's a good thing. I rented a bunch of movies from
R E D B O X(love that they are $1.00!) and we have just been hanging around the house.
Next weekend is going to be a whirlwind so it's probably good that we are hanging low this weekend.
Yesterday my Dad and I went to T o y s R U s to pick up a birthday present for Gracie. I was a little bit disappointed in their selection of girl stuff actually. If your child isn't into B r a t z(Lisa would kill me), or baby dolls, or makeup(tons of makeup kits), there isn't a lot to choose from.
I felt that even their B a r b i e selection was lacking. They only had a choice of either the white
B a r b i e or the black B a r b i e. I didn't t even care if the skin was white but I was looking for one with straight black hair. No dice.
We also saw this doll while we were there:
I'm sorry, but does this seem wrong to you?
This doll's thighs would have given me anxiety as a child(or at the very least pre-teen), and I was a stick.
When are toy makers going to start making diverse toys that represent our population that have realistic bodies?
Soon, I hope or my child is going to be playing with only toys that are carved from wood. :)
