    So tonight I was sitting with my niece watching Avatar in our living room, and seeing as this is also one of my favorite movies, I decided to stay and watch. Halfway through, well a little more than halfway, my niece gets up and leaves the room. I think to myself, “great, this is usually how it ends up, we sit down to watch a movie together and she leaves and I end up watching the whole thing” well about 10 minutes later she comes back and sits next me on the couch with barbies.
    These have to be the most ugliest barbies I have ever seen, seeing as my niece likes to play hairdresser and beautician, which results in the barbies looking like half shaved grunged out groupie. I turn I watch her play with the two barbies, though I don’t think she notices me watching her. As she’s playing I watch her take the two barbies and attempt to make them kiss. She goes on and continues playing, making the dolls stop and show affection for each other every few minutes. I think after the third make-out session, my niece looks up at me and smiles. One question just pops into my mind and I blurt it out without even thinking, “those are two girls, why are they kissing?”…

    My niece says with a smile on her face, “I know, its because they love each other…”

    I’m so taken aback by such a bold statement coming from my 6 year old niece, I don’t know what to think, let alone say. I’m not sure if she can grasp the full concept of what her actions implied or that her statement are words that some adults cannot even speak. My niece made my proud tonight, she may not have known it, but she did.

    That's a great story. Maybe she was told similar stories about animals becoming pals and loving each other and so she learned that love can be with any two creatures. Does she have a Ken or male dolls too?

    I used to kiss the TV and tell my mom I was going to marry He-Man when I grew up.

    Bravo for her, she already knows herself.

    My little brother did the same thing. I had a rabbit and he has a stuffed bunny he calls Rabbity, and he was saying something like "since they're both rabbits they can get married" and I asked "is rabbity a boy?" and he said "yeah but that's ok." so I just said "ok."

    Too bad you're already in a relationship. He-Man was waiting for you.

    Oh well, I guess I take the next guy who wants He-Man.

    This was a great story. Kids are so much more mature and wiser then adults can be sometimes. Such a cute story. I hope when she grows up she still has this attitude. icon_smile.gif
