Veronica watches the TV commercials about Barbies and always had dreamed of getting one. It was almost Christmas and she really wanted a Barbie Doll. The Christmas tree was up and family was coming into town (Increibles Barbies means Amazing Barbies!!)
No la cabeza!
One Christmas Veronica gets a fake Barbie from her rich Uncle.She acted like she liked it but she really hated it. When she got in her room, she threw it against the wall. When her uncle asked where her Barbie was, she said she was sleeping. (So he wouldn't see the crack and her missing eyelash on it.) Then 2 Christmases later, she gets a real Barbie from her Uncle and soon to be Aunt. Veronica was so shocked when she got the Barbie. She loved it. Veronica played with the Barbie all afternoon.
The next day, Veronica went to her friend Martha's house to go play with Barbies. Martha had 2 barbies and one Ken. After a while, Martha tried to take Veronica's doll because it was newer.Veronica screamed, "eres tan malo!!" (You are so mean in Spanish) Veronica grabbed her doll and went home. she held it under her arm so Martha wouldn't take her.
When Veronica was walking home, she said to her doll, "i think you are beautiful." When she looked down at her Barbie, the head was gone!Veronica was about to burst out crying. (No la cabeza means no the head!!
Veronica knocked on Martha's door to see if she had the head. Martha said she promise she didn't take it and said that she would help look for it. Martha and Veronica looked for the head for a long time and when the sun started to set, Martha said she had to go inside to eat dinner. "i can help you look tomorrow if you want." said Martha. Veronica turned around and screamed, " This is all your fault!! I wouldn't have lost the head if it wasn't for you!" and ran home.
Veronica decided not to tell her mom about the Barbie or else she would call her un-responsable. She was so sad. That night, when Veronica was in bed, she couldn't go to sleep. So she hopped out of bed and grabbed both her fake and real Barbies and went to bed with them. She whisperd,"Creo que ambos son hermosos" (I think you are both beautiful.)
