The Rise and Fall and Rise of Barbie


I should start this post by being unapologetic and brutally honest, because that's just who I am-I never wanted kids. I know at least a handful of you are going to gasp in horror, but it's just the truth.

When I was a little girl, I didn't dream of my wedding day or planning an imaginary life, carefully contemplating baby names. I didn't rock baby dolls to sleep or feed them fake bottles. I played with Barbie and she had a sick shoe game, the dream house, a pink Corvette, and Ken came over in the evening. (Then I made him do the walk of shame before the sun came up because Barbie had to go to work too. Because she's independent, obviously.)


I outgrew playing with Barbie, but I didn't change my outlook. There would be no kids and I'd likely end up with Ken's 3rd cousin, anatomically correct Felony Frank. Don't judge me. I was so adamant that I wouldn't have kids that I literally made my parents cry at the thought they'd never have grandchildren.

I gave no fucks.

Then Barbie forgot to get her Depo shot and this happened:


Barbie got caught slippin. I was utterly horrified that I was so careless. I was disappointed in myself. Barbie's bangin bod was about to take a hit and I had nobody to blame but myself. I was young and dumb and I was going to be someone's mother. Did I mention I was dumb?

I was far from equipped to be a mother. After all, I was only renting the Barbie Dream House. It was time to step up my game and little did I know, I was about to embark on a journey that no book could prepare me for. But I'm going to try to prepare at least one of you. Here's the real deal on Barbie morphing into Mommy.


Forget about that tight dress you wear to the club. As a matter of fact, forget the club. You're about to swell up like a well-fed tick on a dog's ass. I don't care if those are Rag and Bone jeans. You won't want to wear them while you're postpartum bleeding to death. Stuff them in your closet and if you're one of the lucky few, you MAY be able to wear them again someday. Probably not, though.


Remember your Corvette? Well, you can kiss that goodbye because you're going to have to buy something more "practical." You can't put a car seat in a two-seater. Sure it'll pain you to buy something else, especially if it's a Mini-Van. (The universal 'your life is over' vehicle.)


Now that Barbie has gained 50-60 pounds and can no longer stunt on her little Sis, Skipper, it's time to give birth. Barbie finds a Douala and vows to have a natural childbirth. Perhaps even a water birth. Twenty-eight hours into her natural birth, Barbie comes to her senses and gets the epidural. Not even her highest, most uncomfortable heels can prepare her for the hell that awaits in that delivery room.


With her new baby cradled safely in her arms, Barbie vows to be an amazing Mom. Ken Jr. will be raised bilingual, eat organic baby food, and wear cloth diapers. Barbie's diet of Adderall and Diet Coke is out the window because she's breastfeeding every two hours around the clock. Barbie is nothing more than a milk cow at this point. Her perky boobs? Yeah, they're not a thing anymore. They'll eventually end up looking like tennis balls in the bottom of a pair of tube socks. I hope Ken works overtime so she can get new boobs when it's all over. Don't hold your breath, though.


Remember when Ken lusted over Barbie? Like ALL. THE. TIME. Yeah, that's not happening anytime in the foreseeable future. But when it does, rest assured Barbie is going to get pregnant again. Barbie didn't know how fertile she could be after giving birth. Before she knows it, she's got herself a set of Irish twins. She and Ken's sexual escapades take a backseat to motherhood.


Now Barb is ass deep in dirty diapers and crying babies. She and Ken's love life takes a major hit. She's a milk factory and Ken is slipping into a midlife crisis. (Probably because he doesn't have a penis.) Ken starts working late, wearing a new cologne and showering the instant he comes home from work...four hours late.

Ken isn't manscaping for Barbie anymore, you can bet on that. By no means is it an excuse, but he's probably disinterested because Barbie is fucking exhausted from breeding and feeding. She either is so sleep deprived she doesn't notice that Ken is creeping or frankly, she just doesn't care at this point.


This once blonde bombshell is so disenchanted that she starts breaking cardinal wifey rules. For example, she's now doing her bathroom business with the door open. Breast milk stains her once beautiful wardrobe and Victoria's Secret has been replaced by ugly nursing bras.


At this point, Barbie gave up her job to raise the spawns. She can't help that she's getting fat because Ken Jr. and his sister Bambi aren't eating organic after all. Barbie shares their meals of cheese sticks and chicken nuggets. She can't make it to the gym anymore and has totally given up on herself. Ken is now in the throes of a full-on midlife crisis and the outcome isn't looking so good.



Barbie longs for her old life. The one she had before she had diaper rash cream caked under her nails. The kinky weekends in Malibu with Ken who couldn't keep his hands off of her. This is where the road splits, my friends.

Barbie can now do one of two things.

1. Barbie can throw in the towel and just exist. She can turn a blind eye to Ken's infidelity and stop looking at the scales. She can settle for her substandard life, wearing jeans with elastic until the day she dies.


OR

2. Barbie can take Ken Jr. & Bambi to school and hit the gym. Everyone knows revenge body is where it's at. She can squat until her booty catches the eye of every man, woman, and child in the grocery store. She can go to the salon and get her weave right and maybe, just maybe start shaving her legs every day again.


I suggest option 2 if you want my two cents.



Now that Barbie has finally managed to achieve MILF status, she waits for Ken. But that bastard isn't coming home till 2 a.m. because he's "working late." Will Barbie take this lying down? Not if Barbie is me.



Barbie not only got her groove back, she also got her job back, sold the mini-van, and broke bad on Ken. She's now happily re-married (to EXTREMELY anatomically correct Felony Frank) and the two are living blissfully together in an undisclosed location with Ken Jr. and Bambi.

  5. Oh Brilliant! I think that alternative ending should be that midlife Ken is now sat in some sleazy dive in Thailand, wearing that stupid white suit that he wears, which is now covered in dubious staints, drinking and crying into his lurid green cocktails with umbrellas, looking jaded and trying to crack onto the waitress (who thinks he is pathetic). I've put too much thought into this. Can you tell that I always hated Ken and Barbie ;-) #FridayFrolics

  17. Your daughter can have fun with Barbie in many ways. Your kids have no need to own a classic Barbie girl to enjoy playing, all you and other gamers need to do is surf the web and have fun together with your children playing dress up games. There are 3 types of fashion games each kid can try.

  20. Of all the free games the most popular are the flash games especially among the younger children. The best thing about these online games is that you just have to log into one of the online gaming sites and start playing the games which are completely free.http://www.elitistjerks.co
