Overheard in front of Hooper's Store.....

So we like to mix it up a little here in the Jones' house and today Barbie met Elmo.  While arguing over who was going to play with the Fisher Price "Daddy", G decides to go get her Ken and Barbie to act as the people on Sesame Street.

So Barbie becomes Gina the Veterinarian and Ken becomes Alan (from Hooper's Store).  So then K gets her Barbie out--her one and only Barbie who is quite disheveled and in a constant state of undress--and this is how the conversation goes:

G:  "So K, uh, I mean Linda, how are you today?"
K:  "Good"
G:  "So where are your clothes?"
K:  "blah, blah, blah" and something else I didn't quite understand because I was laughing so hard.
G:  "So, she is wearing pretend clothes today. Oh, I see, that's a beautiful skirt."
K:  "Noooo, it's a shirt"
G:  "Oh, okay, it's a nice shirt."

And a while later I overheard G talking to her dolls, followed by K talking to her doll.  At this point, you can tell they are starting to get on each other's nerves.

G:  "Come on, let's go to the store."
K:  "Come on, let's go to the store."
G:  "Do you like my new boots?"
K:  "Do you like my new boots?"
G:  "K it's rude to copy people!"
K:  "It's rude to copy people!"

Time for dinner (thank goodness!)  and so we all set down to the table.  G starts the blessing:

G:  "Dear Lord, thank you for today and our trip to Sweet Frog. Please help Daddy to get home safe from work and help that K won't do anymore gross things like picking her nose."
Me:  Stifling laughter.......

And so this is how our summer break begins.........Stay tuned.
