Saturday we had our really great mom/ daughter Christmas shopping day. We dress up, have breakfast downtown and shop for pretty much the only time all year.
My children try everything on. I say yes to anything they want (they don’t ask for much and treasure the smallest things) and they whisper about what they are getting me and love the moment when they say to me
And they treat me to something new. It is the best.
But I have a confession to make. And it ain’t pretty.
Complete rude bimbo salesperson, manoeuvring his eternal ‘first day’ on the job (over and over like groundhog day) while the line snaked out the door and down the street, gave my daughter too much change. I mean quite a bit too much.
When she told me I did everything parenting experts tell you you are supposed to do
only perfectly the opposite
I gave her a high five
and told her to run and not look back.
