Like Mother, Like Daughter. NOT!

The kids were anxious to hit the mall and stock up on back to school clothes, so I called a nephew to tag along, and we headed East. (There is no shopping here in Ponyville. We have Wal-Mart and Dollar General. I only wish that I were exaggerating by omission.)

We shopped the mall, we ate at Sonic and then went back for Happy Hour drinks, we shopped the local hot spot; East truly has it all. It was a good day indeed. (Except for fighting with Micah, but that's most days so it hardly counts.)

While at the local hot spot, Becky and I were perusing the racks of ladies clothes and exclaiming how cute the tops were that we were looking at. And then I couldn't help myself; the urge overcame me to make the daughter wiggle.

"Hey, we could both buy one and be happy happy matchy matchy!" I said in a high pitched sing song voice reserved just for making fun.

*crickets* chirping*

*dead*silence*

*still*waiting*for*signs*of*life*

"Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaah," she said with a horrified look on her face.

I'm not sure if she didn't know that I was joking, or if she just couldn't take the chance of me being serious. Either way, I now know where we stand on that issue.

I also know what I'm getting us for Christmas. It'll be soooo good.


(And yet she chose these glasses at the store because they were "fun." The kids are trying to take the reading lenses out so that they can wear them all day, every day. Fun times here, people. Fun times.)

I have so much to look forward to - times 2!

And how have I not noticed before how strikingly beautiful Becky is?! That picture is just gorgous! I'm still out on the glasses though . . . I am not sure fun is the word I would use either!

First, I actually kind of like the frames.. :)

But just so Becky maybe doesn't feel too bad... it's so much MORE fun to do the matching shirt thing when you're matching your teenage SON'S clothing! Drives him nuts, thus it makes me deliriously happy!

I think those frames should be much smaller and more square for your daughter's face. They're way too big.

As for matching clothes? OMG - please do it.

I need new glasses and that looks pretty cute! No girl ever wants to become her mother but that is exactly what we all do, in our own way of course.
