A few weeks ago, we found ourselves at a mall. We walked around a little, and I stopped into Hot Topic. Yes, I still love that store. They sell some really good brightly colored hair dye and I was thinking of going pink. I also like to look at their clearance shirts.
They had a few youth shirts and I was holding them up, asking Rhayn if she liked any of them. She looked horrified at me, and said "no." Fine. I bought a couple of shirts for myself (including a shirt with Spock on it that says "LIVE LONG AND PROSPER" which I am wearing right now.) I did buy her a Star Wars shirt, though. I knew she would like it.
Later on, she told me that she was trying to be cool, because it was a cool store. I laughed, and told her that was silly. But at the same time, I keep thinking, is this it? Is this the beginning of my daughter being "too cool for her mama"? I am not ready. She is only 8 for goodness sake! I am supposed to have a few more years of loving devoted child before she turns into the demonic teenager.
