We went to the mall tonight (Carmen and I)

Right off the bat she bought me a bag of Kernels popcorn so that I would be good. But then we shopped at a whole bunch of her stores and didn't look at anything for me. And my feet started to hurt but I didn't complain at all, except the one time when I asked her if she was ready to go home yet. I was sure glad when the stores closed and we had to leave before we got locked in.

Spending birthday money is serious business.

Sounds like a "shop til you drop" outing for sure! That is a very cute picture. The picture of Jaclyn is cute too, she looks great in her (your!) outfit.

The post about your dog made me laugh. A cushion theif, huh? My dog is usually pretty good, but when he gets way too excited to go out and play, he tends to just grab whatever is closest to his mouth to take outside: shoes, socks, cat toys, anything will do!

Yes, another niece to shop with! Fun Fun Fun. I wouldn't need the popcorn but I would take it, no questions asked!

You're a great mom!

Good for you! Carmen sure sounds like she enjoyed her serious business.

I'm sure you've been so busy with your busy life, but it's nice to get updates. I've always wanted a daughter, but I'm not sure I could handle serious shopping like that. Even with popcorn. You're a kind mother.

Cute glasses!

I am wondering what she bought on this serious shopping trip.

Marie said...

Carmen looks disturbingly older. Are those just fashion glasses, or am I forgetting that she has persriptions?

Glad you had fun and didn't whine too much in the mall!

This post cracked me up. Total role reversal from years past I'm sure. It will be interesting when my E is dragging me around shopping instead of the other way around!
