Mother-daughter dates. They’re the best.
When mothers go shopping with nine-year-old daughters, sometimes ya just need to buy some tween stuff for yourselves. Why not?
After sifting through the Justin Bieber, Domo and Hello Kitty, here are a few of my new favorite things that we selected for ME during our shopping adventure at Claire’s.
My daughter is a great supporter, as in “Mom, you should totally buy that.”
- strawberry hair clips with diamonds
- Jack Skellington glow-in-the-dark ring (bought a matching one for my daughter. “Mom, we can totally match!”)
- sparkly panda wallet (turns out plastic, sparkly wallets don’t stretch with all of my “grown up” stuff stuffed inside and the snap doesn’t quite snap. Kinda like my pants after Thanksgiving. That is, if my jeans had snaps. They don’t, Silly. They have stretch in them. Duh.)
Oh well. The fun was in seeking out the goods and treasures…with my daughter.
And don’t you want to be “in” with your daughter? Even just a TWEENSY bit?
