Barbie Days are Here

by Terence

I popped out of the room just before bedtime to wash Clare’s milk bottle. As I walked back, I heard her chatting away and fully expected to see her sitting on the bed playing with her toys. But I got a shock when I walked into the room and the bed was empty.

It took me a while to realise that my daughter had slipped under the covers with her Barbie doll and was giving instructions to the poor piece of plastic to go to sleep! Part of me wishes she can stay so small and cute forever 🙂
