Dream house

January 20, 2009

Our 10-year-old has been described as independent, creative — and strong-willed. All admirable qualities for an adult. But, for a grade-schooler? Let’s just say the school year gets a little long this time of year.

The good news is that E. just continues to do her thing — and we all hang on for the ride. Case in point: Santa delivered a Barbie dream house this past Christmas. Very girly, very pink, very plastic. She loves it. She and Barbie arrange and re-arrange furniture, throw parties, enjoy bubble baths and invite Bratz girls over for tea. Guess E. needed to spice things up a little.  The other day, she devised a Barbie bungee jump off the third-story balcony. The perfect final touch to a 10-year-old’s dream house.
