My emotions are always pretty close to the surface. Scott is always prepared with tissues and my girls roll their eyes at how even the simplest of things can trigger the waterworks. Even knowing the plot and results, I still get teary-eyed when watching kids’ movies like Pixar’s Inside Out. For that matter, I’m easily moved when I see something heart-warming take place in real life, on a video or television show.
Maybe I’m just getting soft in my old age. I think that’s it and a few weeks ago while shopping for back to school outfits at Kohl’s, it became quite obvious.
As I was helping Miss K select outfits in the children’s section, Scott had taken Miss M to hunt for clothing where older kids shop. My job was pretty simple because Miss K is fashionably self-sufficient. Miss M, on the other hand, is perfectly content just walking around in shorts and T-Shirts.
Or at least she WAS.
Seldom do I say that something takes my breath away, but this did. Scott texted me this photo and it stirred a ton of emotions. My laid-back, just want to be comfortable, who cares if I match daughter decided on an outfit that was positively stunning. It made her look all grown up. Yes, it made my eyes well up. I’ve discovered that I can no longer make assumptions about what she likes or wants. She’s starting junior high school and things are definitely changing. Since purchasing that outfit, she’s asked to wear it multiple times. One time, just because we were sitting around the house and she wanted to look nice while hanging out.
While we were there, I took a few minutes to walk around and really survey the other back to school items they offer, including backpacks and an entire “Dormward Bound” section.
Of course, Keurig has a place in any dorm room (or at home for those of us coping with the early hours of junior high.) There’s a little something for everyone.
