Last night I turned the table around and decided to tell Emily one if my secrets… My turn to teach her something instead of the other way around.
Christmas is fast approaching and yesterday was Black Friday in the U.S. We have some sales here too but not as it is over the border.
Lesson #1 – I refuse to get into the craziness of shopping when everyone else is. Shop early, shop on-line or don’t shop. This time of year, it’s freezing out, we need warm clothes and the mall is starting to fill with Christmas craziness… Better be done shopping soon!
Lesson #2 – In life, don’t wait for others to make you happy. You see something you like and you can afford it? Get it! My husband and I do this and we’ve never been disappointed. Last night Emily picked a nice scarf for herself and I did the same! We will wrap them and offer them to each other on Christmas Day!
She’s really excited but is a little worries she’ll want to wear it over the next month 🙂
I explained to her that the wait will make opening her gift even more fun!
We high fived and when on to buy something for daddy…!
Here is Emily in her way out
She looked at herself in the mirror and said “now that’s a style!”
I am so glad we’ve managed to raise a daughter full of self-esteem. A daughter who knows she’s amazing and who I am sure will keep making her way through life teaching people.
I agree with you :).
We never indulge in black Friday madness.
It is madness. The you tube videos coming out today don’t make it look good. It’s craziness.
fantastic lessons for a girl !
Nobody should depend on someone else to be happy. Happiness comes within!
Great lessons! And you have raised a wonderful daughter, stylish, confident and full of joy!
