We went shopping today for a shirt for my daughter for a special upcoming family photoshoot. Remember my recent choose your battles mama moment, where my daughter had her heart set on wearing her dress shoes with her very casual attire? Yeah.
Well, she also often has her heart set on wearing dresses. I would guess about half of the time she wants to wear a dress or a skirt. So when I told her we would be wearing jeans for the photoshoot, I wasn't sure what type of response I would get. As I was looking at shirts, she said, "Maybe I can wear a jeans skirt, Mama?"
That was definitely a compromise I was willing to entertain. She picked out several styles as I was looking at shirts. Then she said, as I asked her what she thought about a shirt I pulled from the rack, "I need options, Mama!"
So here is my Mama Moment Instagram from today's shopping experience. Notice my son's approach to shopping for a shirt. (He was more interested in looking at books.)
