That photo is how I think of her, but just like all babies, she has grown up to be a very pretty young lady:
Although I am well aware that she is already 13 years old, I was so not ready for the most recent photo of her that I received. She had been to the beauty shop, and well, got beautiful!
It was time again for us to shop online at Oasap High Street Fashion. We chat it up on Facebook while shopping the website together, to find just the right item to purchase for her. This month, I suggested the Knitted Floral Tassel Trim Vest:
It was something she had on her wish list on the website, so I thought it might just be perfect–modest enough for Grandma, and “hip” enough for the 13 year old. Boy, was I ever wrong!
Sarah told me she wants the Apricot Elegant Bowknot Embellished Strapless Dress for her eighth grade dance:
I was shocked! I can not imagine letting a 13 year old wear that dress. So, I asked her if she had talked to her mother about it. She told me that Mom said it was ok. So, being a dutiful grandma that I am, I told her that her mother had to email me to let me know it was ok for her to have that dress. I was sorta hoping Mom would say NO! But, when the email came, Mom said yes, it is ok for Sarah to have that dress. She said she is trying to let Sarah make choices of her own. But she did say if it was way too short when they receive it, then she will send it back.
What do you think of Sarah’s choice? It is for a school dance for a 13 year old 8th grader. I wouldn’t approve of it, but since Mama said it was ok, I ordered it for her. What would you do?
I was compensated by Oasap for writing this post, but all opinions are my own.
