My granddaughters and I went shopping at Target yesterday. I love their toy department. It makes me happy. Even when my husband and I are in the store without children, I will surf the toys just to see what is new. I always have my grandchildren in mind plus I like to tell you about what I think might be fun.
So, the girls and I walked the length of the store stopping in the aisle with girlie sheets and glancing at the shoes. Eventually, we made our way to the toys. These girls are experienced shoppers but they are even a little in awe of the selection in our Target store.

When we got in the car to come home, Amelia made a wonderful observation about their choices. Maddie, know what! I made a difference! Maddie was a little puzzled but went along with her little sister. She had never heard the word difference used that way before. Amelia immediately explained what was on her mind. She knew what she was talking about. She knew it was special when she didn't pick out the very same thing as her big sister. She had made a choice on her very own. It was a big moment in her life.
So, you see, Amelia does made a difference...she is a teacher and she taught us all that growing up can happen at any time...even when you are shopping in Target.
Note: The Lite Brite that Amelia picked out was packaged in a pink color especially for girls. Do you think she would have chosen it if it had been red? I wonder.
The remote control car Maddie chose was not wireless and a little less expensive than this.
Cute ... I would like to have some grandchildren. (Note to my two kids: Are you listening?)ReplyDelete
They are wise beyond their years to know the value of being their own girl. I love that you observed this and reported back.ReplyDelete
Tom, I am sure your children are listening. But just in case maybe we could share our's with you!ReplyDelete
These little children are a great source of joy (and laughter). But then grandchildren special in their grandparent's eyes. It is only natural.
