The adventure takes on a will of its own when it comes to shopping for the family. I have learned that what I think is the cutest most appropriate outfit is not quite viewed the same way through the eyes of an eight year old girl. The compromise must begin ! We seem to come back and forth to each other with different articles of clothes at least fifty times before the agreement can be made. We look at each other and smile , because I think we both know in our heads that through the disagreeing we have really had fun just being together. I think the silver lining at the end of a long day of shopping and compromising for me is, is that I spent one more day showing my daughter, who is still full of innocence one more life lesson of becoming a young woman.
About once a month the scavenger hunt starts all over, as another important event arrives or the season changes we start the search again. The same disagreements the same differences in clothing , but the same shared experiences of being with mommy. I know one day she will be a teenager and be making these choices in clothing by herself , my prayer for her is that some piece of what I taught her all those years will stay inside her and give her the wisdom to make good choices. I will forever cherish the memories of our times together, because with a blink of an eye I will be by her side as she searches for the perfect wedding dress.
