Happy Birthday Barbie
The news station tells me it's your birthday. My goodness I should have known. 54 is it? You've held your age so well and brought joy and fun to so many little girls including my two. Back then our world revolved around you to a point, how could I forget? Mel my girl's Dad built them a Barbie closet. Painted it pink and pasted darker pink flowers on it. Opening the double doors on one side was a full length mirror for you to check your clothes and make sure you were dressed just right for your date with Ken. On the other side was tiny drawers that really pulled out to keep your tiny accessories and at top a pull-out bar on which to hang your "in style" dresses. My sister-in-law sewed a beautiful white wedding gown just in case Ken proposed for each daughter's beloved Barbie. So "happy birthday" Barbie and may you have many more and continue to make little girls have fun playing pretend.
