A Rare Shopping Day with My Family

I prefer to go shopping by myself with the exception of a rare outing with my BFF Mira and mareng Lanie. (Hey ladies, we haven't gone out for a long time! LOL) Dh does not enjoy shopping and I find it hard to shop with my kids around. Today however, we went to the mall to get a few things. The Christmas Pageant at school is this Thursday and I need to get a pair of dress shoes for my son and a pair of slacks for my daughter. Of course, we ended up getting more than that plus the kids had a rare photo with Santa. We don't do it every year since my daughter was scared of him when she was little. Dh saw a pair of knit sweaters and a Boston Celtics cap so we got that. We went to the GAP and found a nice shirt for my son and pair of slacks for my daughter. We saw a nice puff jacket with a hood and since she's been asking me to buy her one for a long time, I decided to get it for her. We also got her a scarf and a pair of ballet flats. Imagine my surprise when she asked if she can get a pair of metallic ballet flats. OMG, I can tell that my daughter is now a 'tween'. She chooses her clothes and shoes and does not let me do it for her. I don't know if I felt happy or sad or maybe I felt both emotions. My first born will be in the double digits next month! How time flies...pretty soon she'll start asking me about fat burners and make-up.

    I know, it's been a couple of years. I hope the economy goes up then we'll have to celebrate. :o) That's right mareng Lan, our kids are going to be teens soon, can you imagine that!
