> Barbie turned 50 yesterday.

I missed posting earlier because I spent nearly all day on the couch, feeling awful. Hubby came home at noon to take care of the girls and me.

Anyway, in a day when so many people talk of Barbie’s “negative impact” on girls, I wanted to celebrate her “birthday.”

Even in my own state, a delegate has proposed a bill to actually ban sales of Barbie here because she doesn’t provide a positive role model. (However, he has no problem with the Brats dolls??? Being a man, he probably has no idea that there have been Teacher Barbies, Doctor Barbies, Veterinarian Barbies… you name it.)

So, for what it’s worth:

Happy Birthday Barbie!
