Really this is a funny story. But too good not to share. One Christmas my oldest daughter Heather wanted nothing more than a My Size Barbie. I finally broke down and got her one. On Christmas Eve we went to open the box and set out the My Size Barbie, I was so excited because I just knew how much joy this would bring to my Heather. I felt like I was the best Mom ever! Well the very large life like Barbie was missing a leg! Honestly I was a bit shocked. I couldn't wrap my mind around it. I was like why would someone just take the leg?!? So I was confused, do I still give it to her? How do I explain why she is missing a leg? Well I decided to put her back in the box and store her away to be returned. I always felt so bad that I wasn't able to give her what she really wanted that year. I just had to hope that she would grow up to be alright. She did! And guess what? She has children of her own... And this year her daughter asked for a My Size Barbie! You can be sure we will be checking the boxes though! Merry Christmas!

Thank you Michelle for sharing your precious memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
