My Little Girl is Growing Up
Tomorrow, my oldest girl will be 9. She is already looking forward to being 10, because that means two digits for her age.
I have been reminded a lot lately on how much she is growing up. Friday night, she and I went to Tallahassee for a mommy/daughter night. Just a time for us to have some one on one time and talk about what is going on in her life. I planned also for her to get a manicure. This is something she has been wanting for a very long time. The guy who did her manicure was able to convince her that hot pink looked better than red! Then he put little flowers on her ring fingers. So cute! And I think she was pleased.
We did a little shoe shopping, where I learned, thanks to the guy who was helping us, that my daughter can wear a size 6 in women's now. His words were, "That opens a whole other world of possibilities!" Oh, heck no. We will stay in the size 4 for kids right now, thank you.
Then went to Toys R Us for her to spend the gift card that Aunt Kathy gave her. Then off to Olive Garden for a late supper. She totally cracked me up when she ordered chicken fingers! I had a wonderful evening talking with my girl.
