When Amara first asked me if we could go in the attic I kind of just said no and brushed it off but she became obsessed with wanting to go in our attic. We have lived in our home for about 6 years now. I have never been in the attic and I have absolutely no desire to go in the attic. Unlike brave little Amara, Grandma Kc does not like spiders. They don’t freak me out completely but I see no real reason to seek them out. The attic is theirs. I have nothing up there. I have no reason to disturb the spiders.
Amara does not see the spiders as a hindrance of any kind.
But why did she want to go in the attic? I had told her there was nothing up there but she still kept asking. Finally, one day I got it out of her. “there might be a Birthday Barbie up there!”
Amara loves Barbie right now. Many times she has reminded me to be sure and tell everyone on her blog just how much she really loves Barbie. She was so thrilled when I kept her up to date on Ken and Barbie getting back together just before Valentine’s Day. It is funny the little things we Grandmas will do, like listen to the Ken and Barbie update on the news!
Somehow Birthday Barbie is the one Barbie that has not made it into Amara’s cherished Barbie collection and she really wants her bad. I reassured her that since none of us had been in our attic in the 6 years that we have lived here and that before that there were no Birthday Barbies that there could not possibly be one in our attic.
I don’t think she believes me!
