Strawberry Shotcake

Last night the kids and I went to my mom and dad's to watch the Super Bowl.  My mom has a big tub of toys that the children find highly desirable, and she's always adding new and exciting stuff to it.

Last night, Ashley discovered some new Strawberry Shortcake figurines in the big tub o' fun.

But she could not remember the names of Strawberry Shortcake's fruity little buddies, so she turned to me for help.

"Mommy, who's this girl?"

"Hmmm.  That is....Blueberry Muffin.  Yup, that's right.  Blueberry Muffin."

Ashley nodded.  "And mommy...who is this girl?"

"Ummmm, her name is Lemon Drop."

Then my mom chimed in from the kitchen..."Acutally, I think it's Lemon Meringue."

Yes, that's right, people. 

I confused the name of a cute, innocent little Strawberry Shortcake doll with the name of a shot.  One that I was particularly fond of in my early 20's.

Just goes to show you - you can take a mommy out of her 20's, but you can't take the 20's out of the mommy.  As long as you don't make her stay up past midnight.

On that note, wouldn't the names have been oh so much more appealing if they had been named after our 20 something drinks??
Lemon drop, Strawberry Margarita, Pomegranite Martini . . . what?
There was no Pomegranite?
There should have been!
I sense a great marketing strategy to get all of us that used to play with those dolls to buy them again.

Having a little 20's in a mommy is a good thing in my book.

I do love me a lemon drop!
My sister had the scented dolls, they were at least less annoying than Smurfs and troll dolls and Cabbage Patch dolls.

Ruth Anne said...

Oh, yum. I love lemon drops! Now you've got me craving one.

I always had the Strawberry Shortcake doll growing up, cuz, DUH! We both have red hair. My sister always had Lemon (Drop) Meringue cuz DUH her hair is blonde. :-D

How they have changed, eh? When I was little they were less come hither. :)

Is it sad that I'm really jealous of their hair?

Laura said...

That looks like my kind of drink!!!

Brandy@YDK said...

I think I prefer lemon drop. Meringue is such a weird word

Barbara Manatee said...

bwahahahaha!!! That is too funny! there's nothing wrong to still be able to have a lil "20s" still in ya! (& yeah...its hard to stay out all night anymore!)

And I can totally imagine the smells of each of those dolls, too!

Rebecca said...

That's awesome...I"m sure I'll do the same thing. Maybe I'll do it just for fun!

Helene said...

I've never had a Lemon Drop. I'll definitely need to try one...if I can ever manage to get to a bar again in my lifetime.

Agnes said...

Sadia said...

I was totally with you on lemon drop, but I think I was thinking of hard candy. :)

Krystyn said...
