Barbie Meets the Mouse

While going about her chores on Saturday Grace happened to walk by the bedroom she shares with her younger sister where inside, Lillian was playing with her dolls and carrying on an in-depth conversation in strict Barbie-to-Barbie fashion as only a first grader can do in that kid-sized falsetto pitch.

Says Barbie #1: Ooooh! What do you want to do tonight?

Says Barbie #2: I know! How about we go to a movie?

Barbie #1: I LOVE movies--what movie should we see?

Barbie #2: How about we go see Life of a Dead Mouse? I've heard that's a good one.

Barbie #1: I'd LOVE to see Life of a Dead Mouse--it sounds like a good movie. . . .

Grace wandered downstairs and informed me of the conversation going on above our heads. Chuckling I asked her why didn't hadn't noticed that Life of a Dead Mouse was playing (I can only assume it wouldn't be a Disney production). Apparently I missed it's premier amidst the Harry Potter craze.

"Oh I'm not interested in seeing it," Grace said with a smile.

"Really?" I said.

"Yea, I heard it was really, really cheesy," she said.

I don't know which one cracks me up more, my youngest or my oldest.

Maybe "Life of a Dead Mouse" is actually a documentary about Ken's life.

That's a good one! Don't you just love those moments when you connect with your child?

I see you share the humor gene! and let me know when the movie hits Blockbuster. I'll be the first in line to rent it.

With two young girls I know that falsetto you speak of very well. My oldest wants to be a producer (as well as a pastry chef and an painter) so if Grace wants to talk just say the word. :~)

My younger one would not want to see this because it might distress her imaginary mouse companion, Lucy.
JR is now 10, but Lucy has been around for some years, along with her "siblings".

This spring JR was in the back seat of the car, "talking" on her "cell phone" to Lucy's "siblings", for whom she was apparently responsible.
"You've got to behave or I'll lose my job."

I could resist:
"Yeah, I put in. And then you'd have to move in with your mother!"

I love their imaginations!
