Shopping--shoot me now
I went to the mall this morning with my nearly six-year old daughter. Ughh! I've never really taken her shopping for clothes before because we always got clothes handed on from friends. However it was finally time!
Never shop with a child . Parts of it were wonderful, trying on clothes, realizing she's actually grown out of aged 2-3 vests--yeay! Parts of it were bloody awful. Spotting the toy section in Sears--Polly and Barbie, 'I want, I want.' Me trying not to screech in public :/
Sigh. Not the best mother in the world, but not the worst either. :(
We did do GREAT in the sales for both her and her brother, and she insisted on wearing her new jeans out of the store. Even got her a dress for her uncle's wedding in September. I love buying everything at half price and was so happy that we went to the bookstore and I celebrated by buying Allison Brennan's The Prey (she's a fellow KODer and this is her debut).
