Barbie's Lost Her Head!

Little Missy's BFF has lost her head (literally!). It all happened too swiftly that I couldn't stop the "accident" from happening...

You see, Little Missy has recently developed the habit of having Barbie as her companion during bedtime. One night, she was fussing in the middle of her sleep and I had to attend to her... she was asking for her BFF and in the darkness of the night (I didn't turn on the lights), I discovered Barbie was under Little Missy's back... in my haste to get it out in order to stop Little Missy from fussing, I yanked Barbie a tad too hard...
Barbie was separated from her head and there was simply no way I could fix the head back (I tried for many times, even the daddy tried to help)!!! So in the darkness of the night, Little Missy didn't realize anything amiss and was happy to go back to sleep with the beheaded Barbie in her arms. But we already foresee what will happen when the truth was discovered!

When morning came, the daddy soothed a teary and super upset Little Missy by promising her a new Barbie... don't under estimate the power of a father's love... Little Missy was thrilled after knowing that she's going to get a new doll. It didn't matter to her that the old Barbie was beheaded, she simply threw it aside and looked forward to her new BFF's arrival!

*Update: Little Missy got her new Barbie just two days after the beheaded episode... so now Little Missy is sleeping with her new BFF!!!

Saw this FB update of your blog post. Let me give Meimei another doll. I think Barbies don't give young girls an accurate perception of normal body proportions.

agree with MissyE above. Think we shouldn't read too much into it. Then we'll have to stop giving them Care Bears (bears are not THAT friendly, ok??) and Mr Potato Head (eyes are NOT detachable, yah??).
