Trashy Shorts: But Are They All Collecting Benefits?

We visited my sister-in-law's house a few weeks ago, and my kindergartener found himself playing Barbie and Ken because his cousin is older and she gets to decide.

Here is the conversation I overheard coming from the playroom:

My son:  "I have two wives."
His cousin:  "Yeah, because you cheated on one of them.  So really, now you have a wife and a girlfriend."

I wanted to interject and tell them that this scenario probably isn't all it's cracked up to be, but they already had this whole sister wives thing set up in the dollhouse, and really, who was I to judge...


  1. LOL! I love overhearing kids! When I used to take care of my roommate's kids, I also babysat another friend's 7-year-old boy. One day my roomate's 7-year-old daughter and my friend's 7-year-old boy were playing together in the other room. At first they were pretending to be high school students. Then I overheard this exchange.
    Girl: "Okay, lets say I'm the mom and you're the dad. And these (dolls) are our kids."
    Boy: "Wait, I thought we were being teenagers!"
    Girl: "Yes, we still are! We're teen parents!"

    Uh... good luck with that, kids!

  2. OMG! Hahahaha! Aw...thank you, TLC!

    1. But dammit, I LOVED that show on TLC...and I think I saw that they have another season starting up...?

  3. Ha! Kids play the Darndest illegal* things.
