Layout - Little Miss {Clarissa}

Ever since Clarissa turned double digits - its been a downhill task trying to speak to her.  Her mood swings,  her perceptions on what is important etc - is totally different from me.  Sigh.  We were shopping in London when she okayed this dress.  When it came to the time to wear it,  there were tears.  She claimed that the dress was too "frou-frou" and too "poofy".  Sigh...

I did what I could to salvage the situation - BRIBE her!!! I am not going to buy another dress for god- knows how much hence I knew that she needed another school bag - hence off to Roxy I went to get her a "COOL" school bag.  Hee hee - I do know my daughter well - she was so desperate to use the bag that she wore the dress which she claims that her friends will LAUGH at her if she wore it.  Faint - pubescent teenagers... Sigh...

I knew this day would come - her not listening to me but its still a shock when it hit me.  She is definitely no longer my "Little Miss",  more like Miss Nightmare now!
