All signs pointed to girl time, so when I picked up Frances I told her we could spend the evening together, just us. "You mean like 'girl time?'" she said. :)
I asked her what she wanted to do first and she directed me to go home so she could get her purse. "It makes me feel a little bit like a grown up, Mommy." Then she decided we should go to Golden Corral because she was "one time behind the boys." Apparently there was a time that the boys got to go to Golden Corral and she didn't. (I confirmed that with Ken this morning and he says it was a LONG time ago.)
|This was after she went to the bathroom and used the vortex hand dryer on her head. Can you tell??|
After dinner we headed to Kohl's. My mom had told her to look for a specific headband that Frances had wanted on a previous trip and my mom hadn't gotten for her. We couldn't find that, but we did look around at lots of jewelry and clothes. She didn't see anything she wanted (and neither did I).
I did end up finding a scooter for Henry that was on sale. It wasn't big enough for her, so she picked out a jump rope. We paid for our stuff and headed home.
I'm glad I got to spend some time with my sweet girl. I guess I needed some girl time too.
