The Husband was away a couple of weekends ago holding a seminar. So that meant the Angels and I had girlie time together. I wish I could say it was a blast. Some of it was…but shopping with Angel #2 – not so much fun.
Angel #1 has been going through a growth spurt. She needed new shoes and boots. I took the Angels over to Target. Angel #1 found a great pair of running shoes. Done!
Well, Angel #2 had a complete melt down. She did not understand why she wasn’t getting any new shoes. Try explaining to a 6 year that she gets all the hand-me-downs from her big sister. It didn’t go over too well.
As a last resort, I bribed the Angels. Yes – I do it! I agreed to take them out to a restaurant (which we rarely do with them) for lunch if they behaved.
Lunch was great. We dined and chatted. The Angels fought with their feet under the table.
It was a typical mother and daughter outing:) I hope to have many more before they become teenagers and won’t want to be seen with me. It’s coming – I know it is.
BTW – This is what I wore out on our adventures. Angel #1 is becoming quite the photographer.
