"Photos To Follow"

I promised photos in the last post, and since I like to keep my promises, here they are (although if I'd waited I could have uploaded Son#1's photos which are far better - but I didn't want to wait).

This is not the first promise I've fulfilled today. On several occasions when I have picked The Most Adorable Granddaughter#1 up from the centre she attends one day a week I've discovered that she has told her teachers that Nana is taking her shopping - to buy pretty clothes! Often we are going shopping but not to buy clothes. Instead I'm usually just popping into the supermarket to pick up a few essential grocery items that I've run out of. I'm not sure where she inherited her love of shopping from (definitely not from me!) but anyway I promised her that when the baby was born I'd take her shopping for pretty clothes - just for her!

Today I fulfilled my promise. In the future I'll be not so quick to make such rash promises! I had no idea what to expect but a two-year-old-going-on-thirteen is what I discovered! As she examined various items of clothing she'd tell me, "I like this skirt. ... Those pants are nice. ... What about this?" I felt like replying, "You're asking me - the queen of all those who are challenged fashion-wise?" But I refrained. After all, we were out in public.

Thinking it would be easier if I had her secured in a shopping trolley (shopping cart for my American friends) I decided to visit another shop. At least in this shop I was the one lifting items off the shelves, but she still decided whether or not she liked them! I must admit it was rather funny and even more so when I learnt that her mother has never seen her in this mode! Is this a hint of things to come!

Well without further ado, here are the promised photos. I know she's absolutely gorgeous and we are all so proud of her but if you want to comment and tell me again how beautiful she is I won't complain!
