had to have it tuesdaycarissa fox5 Comments

on a wednesday... but hey... who's counting right?

i said i wouldn't do it.
she didn't need it.

we went up the street some time back to get the girls new tennies.
when on our way out... she saw the fossil shop.
and literally ran for it!
campbell has a thing for fossil.
i love how she is finding her own way... her own style and taste.
a neat thing to see.

we "HAD" to make a pass through the store.
when she saw the messenger bag... her face lit up!

and the "mom pleeeeeease"... began.
"i'll buy it with my own money"...
"omgosh it's sooooo cute"
"mom... it could be my book bag".
tears fell.
she REALLY wanted that bag!

like i said though... she didn't need it...
her backpack from last year was perfectly great!
so...
we left without it.

as a mom i have to say...
KNOWING just how much she wanted it...
it was hard to walk to the car.

ohhhh those times.
those battles.
 wanting to give/do but...
wanting to teach patience AND wants vs needs.


fast forward to today.

i am learning a few things.
one... having a great outlet center less that five miles from where we are... dangerous!
two... sometimes i eventually give in.
three... she sure loves her new book bag... the one she had to have!
