Who isn't tired of looking at naked barbie's perfect body lying around the house?
I put my nail polish to the best use it's had making swimming suits for the girls' barbies. The one on the right was already painted. The girls were pretty excited to see their barbies in swimming suits ready for the pool!
I have received some valid comments from readers who have understood that I am teaching my girls to be ashamed of their bodies. I hope I can end your anxiety over this and let you know my reasons for the swimsuits on the barbies. Like these readers, I feel very strongly the importance of teaching my daughters the beauty and sacredness of their bodies. We talk freely and openly about our bodies in our home and in covering them up around others, we are showing respect for our bodies. Our bodies are so special and beautiful, we don't feel that they are to be flaunted for the public to see. We demand respect for our bodies from those who we associate with. We should NEVER be ashamed of our bodies. My girls know this and are very comfortable in their own skin. As beautiful daughters of God, my girls have love and respect for the amazing blessing of beautiful female bodies.
I hope this eases anxiety any of you are feeling about my decision to teach my girls respect for their bodies. If not, please know that I have the best intentions in my heart. Please keep comments respectful. My girls visit my blog and it is meant to be uplifting and edifying for them. Thank you for your concern.
