with my daughter!
She requested it months ago...
"Mom, can we have a day out together before school starts?"
How could I say no to that?
She planned it, brought the money she earned this summer, and was in charge of the itinerary. She included the two most basic elements of a successful day of retail therapy: fun stores and stops for ice cream and food at both ends.
I showed up, drove us around and ate the treats. She knows how to shop, I will say that.
It was sweet.
(And so is she)
