Since Julia went to a friends house and played Barbies, she has brought them up several times. I don't let her play in the barn loft since I'm concerned she'll fall out the door, so it meant that the Barbies once again were going to litter my playroom floor. Actually it's worse than that since Tori and Julia are semi-scared of the basement. The Barbies are going to litter the girl's bed-room and spill out into the living room. So, last night, we hosted scrub the Barbies, the Barbie cars and the Barbie airplane in the driveway. Julia was pretty thrilled with the whole event. With the barn collection I just cleaned, I see no reason to donate any more money to the Barbie billionaires.
My favorite part of the cleaning event is when two of the ducks showed up and snatched a plastic Barbie item and tried to run with them. We chased them to get it back so they wouldn't choke on it. While Ben was in hot pursuit of the one duck, Tux waddled by with something on the edge of his mouth. I chased him down and pulled this item out of his throat.
He's certainly cute, but he's a high maintenance duck.
