Kids say the darnedest things...

Burka Barbie is for real (link)

So my mother has sent my 3yo a box of thrift store Barbies and Barbie clothes, some of which would make Grace Jones blush. While I am driving her home from preschool, strapped in her car seat in the far back of the minivan, 3yo looks at her Barbie (naked) and remarks,

"Barbie has really strong nipples."

I take it all back. As a mama, I rock. This girl sees "strong nipples" not "big nipples." She's set.

BTW Monk has nailed what is wrong with the whole "Cheney got a gun" thang:

Cheney, and this whole administration, is guilty of

"Firing without having a clear idea of what the outcome will be and then scrambling deceitfully to control the disastrous outcome."

Hold the phone though, leftie bloggers. Sometimes we can go too in the Deadeye Dick Cheney Gun Club:


Starting my weekend early, kids outta school for four days. Have a good one.


  1. Is Burka Barbie circumcised?

  2. Of course Burka Barbie has strong nipples. By wielding her mighty nipples, she can make Ibn Ali Ken do anything she wants him to do.

  3. Have you heard this song yet?

  4. My daughter asked, at about the age of 4, if Daddy and Mommy had sex. The conversation went a little like this:

    Dad: You know where babies come from don't you.

    Daughter: Yup, from Mom's belly.

    Dad: And how does Mom get the baby in the belly?

    Daughter: From Mommy and Daddy having sex.

    Dad: So what does that tell you?

    Daughter: You guys are doin' it!

  5. That's awesome. I can see her playing with her Barbie as a strong feminist, like Lisa and her Malibu Stacey.

    Daughter: You guys are doin' it!


  6. Ok, I know the Cheney picture is bad, but so, so funny! Don't you appreciate your kids more when you get to have a break like Madrona?

  7. Enjoying your blog a lot.

  8. Amazing. I'm linking to this Burka Barbie story 'cuz I still don't 100% believe it.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
