That...

Parent. I have become that parent. I drove around to four different stores today looking for a freaking Cinderella doll for Alexis. Four. All because I won't buy her a Cinderella barbie. I looked at them in all four stores, but I just could not bring myself to actually purchase such an inaccurate representation of a female figure for my daughter. I know, some of you are out there rolling your eyes and saying, "She is three, for fuck's sake. It is innocent." Well, I distinctly remember thinking that Barbie's body shape was beautiful and what I should strive for as a little girl, not realizing that it is a shape that requires one to carry your liver in a bag, it is so distorted.
