My first born is now 10 years old and is growing like a weed! No, I don't feel old (unless I see the whites in my hair LOL) but it still amazes me how it seems like my kids are growing up so fast. Does anyone else feels that way or might have felt that way in some point? She's now in her tween stage, that awkward point where she's not a 'kid' anymore but she isn't a teen either. I remember when I was at this stage, I didn't know which part of the store to shop for clothes. It's different now since there are a lot of choices for tweens when it comes to clothing. Which brings me to one sore point. I buy her clothes and shoes which she does not like and does not wear (unless I talk her into wearing it). It's not as if the clothes are hideous. What gives? I've come to a point where I don't even buy her clothes unless she is with me. Then I have to ask her over and over again if she 'really' likes it. I'm thinking of drafting an agreement that she needs to sign, something like this:
I, A, do solemly swear, that I will wear these clothes and shoes. I will not give mommy a hard time when she asks me to wear something nice and pretty. I will not make funny faces or make any comments. I will not whine. I promise not to ask why I should wear nice shoes instead of my favorite Nike sneakers. I will lose ALL my priveleges if I do any of these actions.
What do you think? I probably will have to list all the priveleges that she can lose. It's better to have everything in black and white. LOL
Anyway, this was just a thought, for now. I hope that I don't have to resort to this. Wish me luck!
