Most people like shopping for shoes. I am not one of them. On any given day you will find me in a pair of old Nike walking shoes or a pair of comfortable crocs shoes. My daughter Lyric however has many, many pairs of shoes. Everything from flip flops, Heels to every color Converse tennis shoe there is. You gotta love her.
She was excited so we headed out to go shopping at her FAVORITE place. Guess where that is? The mall of course! The prices of those shoes at the mall had my head spinning. I was like REALLY? You want how much for one pair of shoes? Oh boy, not only was my head hurting but now my feet were beginning to also. I can not begin to estimate how many stores we actually went in to try on shoes. After about two hours of looking, surprisingly she could not decide which pair to buy.
TIME TO CHANGE IT
UP AND VISIT A PLACE
OF MY CHOOSING
I decided to take her to Payless shoe store. That's right, I said Payless. I know you old-schoolers out there remember that store. Its one of the favorites of this mom on a budget. Get this, She loved it there and loved their selection. Can you see me doing the happy dance?
I feel so blessed spending time with my teenager. I know that there are other things that she would rather be doing. Giving me a afternoon of her time has made me smile all day long. Its not about the shoes, it's about the time I get to spend with her while shopping for those shoes (Smile)
What about you? How creative are you becoming when figuring out the best way to spend time with your teenager? Have you showed him/her how much you love them today? Keep loving and spending time with your kids, Until then, I will be praying for you.
