A couple of years ago, our neighbors bought their daughters a Barbie Jeep Wrangler as a surprise Christmas present. A few days later, they found a steal of a deal on an Escalade and they traded up. The poor little Jeep was now homeless. Our neighbor sent out an email, offering the Jeep at a discounted price. Chloe was only a year old at the time, but we thought she might enjoy it some day.
It has been 18 months and Chloe has finally found the love in her heart for her Barbie Jeep Wrangler. I think it has something to do with the fact that she now has lots of room to drive it around. And because it is in the privacy of her own backyard, she can drive it without any clothes on.
Here is my little girl posing in her Wrangler sans clothing and sans diaper. Ain’t she cute?
It’s not exactly Rubicon, but there she goes, four wheeling in some serious off road conditions (mostly dried leaves).
Look out Chloe!!! You’re headed straight for the bamboo forest!
The Wrangler has a gas pedal, but no brake. To stop the Jeep, one must simply pull her foot off the gas pedal. Chloe hasn’t quite figured that out yet. Well, it’s only her first day…I don’t expect her to be an expert yet.
After each crash (and there were many, many crashes), Chloe would say “oops, sorry!” and mosey along. I’m so proud of my little girl, undeterred by life’s little road blocks.
And just like that, she is off and riding again.
