Every little girl has a dream. To have the perfect hair, the perfect clothes, the cutest boyfriend, to get married and to live in a dream home. And for me that all came true.
I remember when I was a girl playing with my Barbie dolls and using them to act out my life like I imagined it would be. Cruising in a jeep, meeting up with friends, going to the beach and having sweet dreams with my closet and perfect mansion. Little did I know that acting it all out would one day make it reality.

I’m not saying that I am Barbie, trust me I would never want to be that skinny. But I do have a perfect husband, the cutest kids, and a house I can call home. I didn’t realize that until my daughter started playing with barbies and asking me to join in on her fun. I am lucky enough that my Mother kept all the dolls from way back when I was a kid. I can remember the scenarios my sister and I played over and over again. The funny thing is back when I was a kid there was only one male Barbie and that was ken. Now there is a whole new world of male barbies. But back to my creative thinking…
I was able to remember a whole world that I thought I left behind. Those memories of playing barbies with my sister came floating back and I can’t help but smile when I reminded of them. So I encourage my daughter to do the same! Be creative. Be fun. Love life because anything is possible.
Thinking back I now know that those moments are ones that I can never recreate so taking the time to roll play with Cheyenne and let her creative juices flow are priceless.
Another thing I didn’t realize is the movies! I have to honestly say that the movies are entertaining and I can actually sit through them, which says a lot after all the children's movies out nowadays. Whether you have Merliah from Barbie in a mermaid tale or Mariposa in Barbie™: Mariposa and the Fairy Princess it inspires independent creative thinking in kids.
I wonder what my life would have been like without the creative play and putting thoughts into action. Would I be who I am today? Would I be able to set goals, dream of a future and celebrate in the better creation of who I am today?
It is hard to believe that goal planning and future dreaming all started at such a young age, our minds are a powerful tool.
Encourage creative play with your kids and help them create a life they want to have in the future. Using their imagination is a powerful tool they’ll need throughout their lives so it is important to foster that at a young age. After all there is no right or wrong when it comes to imagination!
