So there I was, smack in the middle of the girls department, lost and bewildered. I had set out to find a birthday present for my youngest grandchild. The problem wasn't that I couldn't find anything...no, that wasn't it. The problem was that I had no idea what she might like or what size she wears. If you read my post yesterday, you know that I have never met this little one! Oh, what to do, what to do!
Desperation was setting in fast! I did the first thing that came to my mind - I asked a total stranger, who happened to be a Mom shopping with her preschooler, what size her little girl wears and how old is she? Then I told her my story. She was very happy to help me out! I now knew that her daughter is five and small for her age, so I picked out a pretty dress one size larger. Sigh...what a relief!
After checking out at the store, I hurried home, wrapped the gift, signed a cutesy birthday card for her, and un-birthday cards for her sisters, and packaged it for mailing. Whoosh...it is on its way to my Curly, Redheaded Munchkin! I can't wait to see if she likes it.
Do you have as much fun as I do, shopping for grandkids?
