Shopping with my Daughter

I just went to Target with my 10 year old. Everyone should experience the joy of shopping with her. So with her permission, I share our recent experience. 

Every other year or so she gets Valentine’s and St. Patrick Day shirts. We went over to that section and I showed her this: 

Her response?  

“But gold is a solid rock. I don’t want my heart to be a solid rock.”

Then we saw this:

Her response:

“Donut pants?  That’s something YOU would wear.”

And there you have it. 

I have no idea why the second picture is sideways.

(And I probably would wear them if the situation was right.)

,In the Dog House

My kids want a dog.  My daughter really wants a dog.

A grainy and therefore id-defying picture of my daughter with a borrowed dog.

I never had a dog growing up, so I’m not so sure about getting one.  There seems to be a lot of crap involved.  And I already deal with a lot of crap.

We also travel a lot and I’m not sure how far it is to get a dog that is kenneled at least one weekend a month.

Two of our friends got dogs for Christmas.  My kids have been playing with these dogs and whimpering when they leave them.

It’s not like I haven’t tried substitutes.  My daughter has four robotic dogs (all different sizes being able to do different things which means that if you put all four together, it is almost like a real dog) and a  Webkins dog she can play with on the computer.  Why is this not enough?
