    As if YOU didn’t make it that way for Evie years ago Val!
    — How soon we forget!

    It’s easier to take someone else’s kids shopping. I sure hope they show this shopping trip… could be fun!

    Don’t worry. That’s what the cup of tea is for.

    Judging by how Evie handled the dog when there was a nail problem, she won’t have much of a problem with the granddaughters. Val is a sucker with those girls. Evie would have trouble with grandsons, if there were any from Val.

    Uh-oh, it seems Evie has forgotten. My older son was okay but my younger son was a pain. He was very fussy and very vague about what he wanted. At the end of the excursion, he settled for plain colored t-shirts – after hours of looking for acceptable logos. At least both were strictly Levi’s and Vans shoes boys so that parts were easy. That part of being mom I don’t miss – both are now grown.

    Don’t forget the parent’s curse: When you grow up, I hope you have kids who behave exactly like you. Evie may be planning to let the girls get whatever they want to remind Val what she was like at that age.

    That’s a great thought! Maybe Evie will make a day-trip out of school shopping, eating out, etc., which might help Holly feel less anxious about the whole trip (young teenagers get Very anxious about clothes shopping…what’s in, what’s out, etc.)… ;)
