Well, by now, many of you know I am a shopper..Shopping for myself, is a slow paced enjoyable time...I look, try on..look some more..buy...I sit..
Well, today,I took my grandaughter [age 15, and a size ONE] ,shopping...Grandmother was keeper of the $$$, and I followed Caitlyn..I might add, not at a slow pace
We went into stores, that are only a blur, when I go alone..
She decides what she wants to try on, so she goes, I sit..she comes out of the dressing room, and I ooh and I ahh, or I go..thumbs down...She listens..Remember I am the keeper of the $$$.
Standing in one line..another Grandmother, sans grandchild, asks Caitlyn her opinion..
She gives it..Grandmother is happy, she obviously is not making the grand mistake she thought she was..My kid smiles..
Walking in and out of these stores, I have to wonder, with the music blaring, how these kids, can hear when they finish their shift...Being in retail, most of my life, I look at these sales kids..chewing gum, using words, my supervisor would have fired me for , lo those many years ago..Abercrombie alone, could give you apolplexy...Times have changed.
Its so hard to realize that my little baby , is now a pretty, smart young woman..it makes me sad and happy at the same time...I remember with joy, buying her foo foo little girly girl clothes..now she wants plain... thats ok...Grandma is still foo foo..it was a nice day, spent with a nice person....despite the great divide..we had a very nice day....Someone please cue, Sunrise Sunset...!!
