  • Elijah: Maddie is my best friend.
  • Me: She sure is buddy. You are really lucky.
  • Elijah: We are going to get married.
  • Me: Yeah? That would be really great!
  • Elijah: I'm going to go to Costco, and get her the shiniest ring they have.
  • Me: Really? She will love that.
  • Elijah: And she will get me one too.
  • Me: Yep - buddy - please put your shirt on. It's really time to get ready.
  • Elijah: (super peeved) Mom! I'm talking about MY WEDDING!

Look familiar? Artist Nickolay Lamm designed a doll to look like the average 19-year-old walking — or running — on the street. 
"Could A ‘Barbie’ Get Real? What A Healthy Fashion Doll Looks Like"

I can only hope this artist knows about the late 70’s/early 80’s Barbie counterpoint Cindy. My mom made ALL the clothes my Cindy wore (Barbie clothes were too small!). She made her a multi-story house out of a huge cardboard box, carpet scraps, and magazine art. I am so privileged to have a mom who cared so much.
