I spent the most of the day shopping with my youngest daughter. She is 13. I am older than that. Here's how I know:
1. The only young stars I "know" are Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. I do not know R. Kelly or Josh Hutchison or One Direction. I do know now most of the celebrity names that came out of her mouth.
2. Do you know what "G6" means? It means SUPER FINE. I told her that's what we said back in the day. SUPER FINE. She just stared at me. "You mean G6?" Oh yes, that's what I mean.
3. Looking at a menu, I look at the salad and soup section first.
4. I watch the news off and on during the day. Maybe some 13 year olds do that. But I know when my daughter has the clicker she does not watch a little Wolf Blitzer.
5. Shoes. Let's talk shoes. Back in the day I could wear any style, any height, any anything. Target shoes. 9West's Shoes. But now I have to pay a little more for comfort. The cutesy shoes my daughter eyed brought back memories of how I used to be a carefree shoes wearer. Not anymore. Sad.
6. While we were in a major department store, I told her I wanted to go upstairs and look at the bedding and housewares. (After we had shopped in Juniors) She didn't complain but I had to laugh at myself. What 13 year old wants to look at sheets and towels? On the other hand, this Mom was looking forward to it. **by the way, sheets not on sale? $$$$
We had a good morning. Dancer GIrl picked out shorts (they were on sale) and the cutest dress. We had lunch. We talked and shopped and stayed within my budget.
I don't put photos of my children on this blog. But today I'm going to make an exception. Ironman and I.T. girl are on a trip together this week. (they will be home Friday THANK GOODNESS) They are working at a camp in Guatamala and yesterday I got this photo in my email box.
Hugs and Kisses. Talk again tomorrow.
