Once upon a time Jane was talking to a young male friend of her’s on our way home.
Jane: “But what kind of Barbies do you like?”
YMF: “I don’t like ANY Barbies.”
Jane: “But you like Ken?”
Jane: “You like princess Barbies?”
Jane: “But you like Merida.”
Jane: “You like Jasmine?”
Jane: “But you like Jasmine!”
Jane: “No. Jasmine.”
YMF: “Oh. No.”
Jane: “But you like Barbies!?”
Jane: “But you like…”
It was an impressive conversation. Jane’s persistence and complete unwillingness to accept given answers as fact had met it’s match with her friend’s polite refusal.
The conversation continued on into the house…
Jane: “You wanna play Barbies now?!”
It was time for me to stop hiding my giggles and step in.
Me: “Hey guys, how about Legos? Should we get the Legos out?”
YMF: “Are they Barbie Legos?”
Fortunately I was able to assure him that there were no Barbie Legos and they played happily ever after.
I love the pictures with the story 🙂 Too cute how those conversations go sometimes!
Thanks I had been waiting for an opportunity to use those photos I was a bit worried no one would notice her face changing in them. Glad I was wrong!
Love the pictures and the conversation! :p
It was pretty hilarious, I was dying laughing while driving home that day.
Giggle, snort. I love those kids!
Extra entertaining when they mix together!
But I still want to know if he likes Barbies! (She should have asked about Skipper. Even boys like Skipper. Or was that just me?)
I must admit I’m not sure I can tell Skipper from Barbie but after the Lego playing he was seen with a Barbie like doll in hand. Maybe it was Skipper… 😉
My girls had a strawberry blond Barbie they always gave me when we played. I named her, affectionately, Veronica.
She is quite stuborn when she Wants something and cute 😉
“Quite stubborn” may be a bit of an understatement! She’s in a – if I think it then it must be true -stage!
It s good ! At least she Has caracter!
Even if hard for Moms like us…
