I am a Barbie Girl

  • 38 comments

daddy as barbie girlThat’s right, I am a Barbie Girl. That’s me on the left in the green shirt. As a reward for my daughter behaving like an angel when my wife abandoned me, we went online and played Barbie Girls. It was a dream come true for me…right up there with going shopping at the mall with my wife, which really means my wife shops while I try to keep track of three kids all going in different directions (if it was legal, I would clone myself).

Actually, Barbie Girl was kinda fun. The little princess and I have not been online together in several years. She was using mommy’s computer while I sat ten feet away at my desk. The little princess thought it was so cool when we started chatting with each other online. You should see the smile on her face when I bought virtual gifts for her with my Barbie Bucks. I’m smiling too because the gifts didn’t cost me anything.

Below is a picture of me talking with my daughter (pink dress) in her virtual room. Just like in real life, my daughter is also into pink in her virtual world.

Here’s a blurb from the Barbie Girls site if you are interested:

The Barbie Girls world is designed to be a safe, fun, and exciting place for girls to play online. Once a girl has registered with the site [screen name and password], she can create a virtual character, design her own room, shop with B Bucks (virtual “money”) she earns, play games, watch videos featuring her favorite Barbie movies and products, and have real-time chats with other registered users. Our sophisticated word filter keeps this chat appropriate for girls and prevents personal information — such as your child’s name, phone number, and address — from being given out to anyone unknown to you.

  1. Jeez, when my daughter was younger I used to moan about being asked to play Barbies with her because I didn’t have the ability to “imagine” play situations easily. I found it to be a chore.

    Now I feel bad.

    You go, Daddy!

  2. These kinds of game/socializing sites are all the rage now aren’t they? I think it’s great that you played with your daughter. Little moments like this have big impacts on hearts.

    Hugs,

  3. That looks like fun. I’ll bet you play Barbie Girls again just to get more time with Princess.
    I’ll have to tell my niece, Prissy, About this site. She is SO girly.

  4. ” shopping at the mall with my wife, which really means my wife shops while I try to keep track of three kids all going in different directions” — Wow, I finally know how my husband feels about those shopping trips we take… Though I always tell him that he could stay home with the kids… ;-)

  5. You are an awesome dad for doing that! I can only hope my husband will bend a little bit when it comes times to play tea party… and even then, I don’t think he’d admit to anyone that he did it. ;o)
