Mom found a Chinese Barbie we bought near the beginning of our adoption journey (early 2004) at a antiques shop. She decided to open it and give it to Reese. Reese loves it.
Reese has a pink Murphy, as she calls it, that her niece Kaci gave her (along with a tiny Tony Stewart car, but that doesn't pertain to the story. Thanks, Kaci, by the way! She loves it.). She was playing with her Barbie in it after I showed her how to make the Barbie sit in the driver's seat. After a little while, we hear 'Mama! My baby gots a boo-boo! Murphy got a boo-boo!".
Reese: My baby gots a boo-boo. Murphy gots a boo-boo.
Mom: Did your baby have a wreck in Murphy?
Reese: Yeah-huh. My baby gots a boo-boo on her neck.
Mom: Your baby has a boo-boo on her neck?
Me: Can you say someone is role-playing?
This Barbie has long, black hair, like me. So the association isn't a strange one to be made by Reese. But the fact she was putting her baby is a wreck like I had was...cute, and impressive, that she could make the association.
By the way, we LOVE comments. If anyone asks question about Reese, her special needs, etc., please feel free to leave a comment, and I will do my best to answer it. The commenting is open to "anonymous" commenting, which means it asks you to type in your name, and...I think email, but you DO NOT have to have a Blogger/Gmail account.
Thanks for any comments. And Stacy, I know you always read. : )
