I have plans to improve Mr. & Mrs. Dotson new home. They currently reside in a beautiful home and it is the Barbie Totally Real House by Mattel. It has three working sounds, a doorbell that chimes, sounds of the toilet flushing and running shower. Yes, it was another purchase I just had to have. The furniture is pretty cool too. The chair and ottoman convert to make a great bed, you have a table, tv, dining room table with two chairs and accessories for the bathroom and dishes for the kitchen. I visualize a total Ethan Allen look with a little bit vintage pieces mixed in. On that note, let's check on our favorite retirees.
Today was the day Mr. Dotson wanted to sit down and do his favorite thing--nothing! He is one of those folks that really enjoy being retired. On the other hand, Mrs. Dotson has things around the house that need to be done. The chairs need to be painted and re-upholstered, pictures need to be hung up, walls need to be painted before the new sink arrives (why there isn't one always confused me), all the things that will nake her house a home. Seem like the day started pretty good. Mr. Dotson catching a game on the t.v.
Mr. Dotson: "Pretty much, heehheeehhee?"
Mrs. Dotson: "I thought you were going to tackle the list."
Mrs. Dotson: "My darling beautiful wife, THIS is the list. Your delicious cake and football."
Mr. Dotson: "No, Honey, not at all. It just not on MY list, hee, hee. It's not on Beauty list either, hee, hee. See."
Mr. Dotson: "We have worked hard, honey. I have earned this day. It looks to me you're not working on your "list" either. Especially with your feet propped up, getting ready to read one of your magazine."
Mrs. Dotson: "Out of your own mouth, I have EARNED this day, hehehee. Beside the children are stopping by."
Mr. Dotson: "Children, what children??, Cara in Detroit, Nathan in Guam, LaShayna, Alan and Kayla are working or doing something with their families. I KNOW I don't have anymore kids."
Mrs. Dotson: "Oh good lawd!, what kind of sweet tea did you have? What did you add to the cake batter? You are a mess today. I told you Diamond was going to stop by. Did you forget?"
Mr. Dotson: "Oh than she won't be staying long. Didn't you say she just got her driver license. She's going to be high tailing it from now on. She probably gonna drive to the mail box just because, hee hee."
Mrs. Dotson: "No more cake for you."
Mrs. Dotson: "Honey, the kids are here."
Ms. Dotson: "Stay Beauty, good girl."
Mrs. Dotson: "Oh my, look at Miquel. That right honey come on in, come on it. Let me see you."
Miquel: "Doggie!, Doggie!, Woo!, woo!"
Diamond: "They're in the car, she always kicks them off when she get in the car, Uncle Nate. It kinda funny to me."
Mrs. Dotson: "Come on in and sit down. Ms. Diamond with the driver license."
Diamond: "I know, right?. I remember when I wanted a chauffer now I get to chauffer my brother and sisters. I'm very careful about it too. I don't talk, text or blare the music."
Mr. Dotson: "Good, those are bad habit for a new driver especially when you have your siblings in the car."
Mrs. Dotson: "Yes, I did as well as cookies for you to enjoy."
Mr. Dotson: "What she mean Diamond is she made the cake but it wasn't for you. Only the cookies are for you guys. You see the cake was on MY list take care of today."
Mrs. Dotson: "Nate, shame on you. Now you want to refer to the list. Don't listen to him, then again he is acting strange today, so you might want to take some cake and the cookies home."
Diamond: "Oh Uncle Nate, you are so funny. Let me call my mom and let her know I arrived ok."
Mr. Dotson: "Sure, let me take Beauty out. When you get a chance Diamond make sure to introduce you and the twins to our new friends."
Diamond: "Ok Uncle Nate I will."
Maddie: "Tee Aan, Tee Aan."
Mrs. Dotson: "Come her Maddie, come to Auntie Ann."
Maddie:"Hi!, Hi, Te Te unte. Tee Ann."
Mrs. Dotson: "I'm so glad to see you. Your so lucky to have a big sister that can take all of you guys to the park, the museum, the library. Hey, let's not forget Chuckie Cheese."
Maddie: "Hi, Hi."
Miquel: "Go, go, goop."
Diamond: "These two here are my baby sister and brother. As you can see they are fraternal twins. They were part of Mattel's Teacher Barbie Set. It included desk, chalkboard and a talking Barbie that praised the children with phrases like, "Good job", "Try again". They were named Miquel and Madeline and I'm so glad to be their big sister. I do have another sister who I'm sure you will meet soon. I'm sorry to say it time for us to head home. It was really nice to meet you."
