Yesterday I was in the shoe store with Grace. While hunting about the clearance racks not looking for anything in particular, I heard her call me.
“Mom, what do you think?”
I turned around and there she is standing in a pair of bright red paten leather pumps!
“They fit me…can I have them?” she said while modeling these incredibly inappropriate shoes for an 8 year old girl.
I just laughed…but then I thought…Oh my God, shades of things to come!!! Thank heaven her father wasn’t here to see this!!!
Grace grimaced and I realized that the look of fear must have suddenly appeared on my face. I quickly adjusted producing a smile and replied…
“No Gracie…at least not this year.”
