Girl Time

Oh, I love my girl. Today, Katie and I had a whole day of, "girl time," which is what we call any time we do something with just the two of us. No boys. Well, today we went shopping and out to lunch, and we had a grand time. We shopped. We laughed. We ate. We went to Barnes and Noble to read and rest up for more shopping.

Katie is fun to be with. She is silly and sings songs all day long in "opera" style. She skips from store to store. She wants to try on every fancy, floaty dress in the store, but is a good sport about trying on all the boring jeans her mom wants her to try on. She shares her chocolate chip cookie. She endures the cold (4 degrees below zero!) on the way to the car at the end of the day. And she laughs and chatters happily all the way home. I can't think of a better way to stay warm on a freezing~cold day like today, than having girl time with Katie.

Fun, fun. And thanks for your comment on my blog. It always helps to know that there are others out there who can relate. It somehow makes the difficulties easier. I really appreciate it.
