Is there anything worse? I can think of a million things I would rather do than go clothing shopping. Which makes shopping for your teenage daughter’s clothing all the worse! And of course there are the arguments about fashion and the tears about what does or does not look good. Then add to it the dressing room attendants that treat all teenagers as if they are shoplifters and you have the makings of a truly awesome day! Sarcasm completely intended.
But, we have the ability to put clothes on her back. And not just any clothes, but the clothes she wants. How many parents are going to sleep tonight worried about where their child’s (or children’s) next meal is coming from? How many are freezing tonight?
I cannot begin to imagine that kind of anguish. The struggles we have endured in our journey through parenting cannot begin to compare. It certainly puts everything into perspective. My Bug has everything she needs… She certainly does not have everything she wants, but she will never do without the necessities of life and gets to enjoy it all in the latest fashions!
