When I was my young I had a LOT of Barbie dolls. I probably went through 25 Barbie Dolls… maybe more. And now many, many years later my girls still have them. What is about about Barbie that gets little girls so excited? Barbie is beautiful. Barbie is smart. Barbie drives a Corvette. Barbie has a beach house. And over the years Barbie has shown that women can do whatever they want if they set their mind to it. Barbie has had many careers. Barbie is a business woman! Who wouldn’t want to have all of that?
It is important to teach our kids that they can be whatever they want to be. And Barbie helps. My girls have recently started a business. I don’t think they meant to do it. I think like a lot of us they just fell into it. I started them crocheting a while ago. They enjoyed it. However, they took it even further. After a little more guidance from a teacher at school, Alexis started creating bracelets. She then expanded what she learned and made them wider. And then… she started selling them at school for $1 each! Then Kayla got involved and started helping. Now they are a business! The other day they created their own business cards. They are definitely my children!
I look forward to watching them expand their little business and helping them when needed.
