Moving Into Big Kid Territory

We spent the weekend with our daughter, son-in-law, and all three of the granddaughters, while we were celebrating our daughter's birthday.  Some of the big girls (me, my daughter, and the 6-year-old) went shopping at the big mall on Saturday, and really had a great time.

This was really the first time that our oldest granddaughter had enjoyed shopping, at least with us.  She's 6-1/2 now, but I sure didn't think she was going to be interested in shopping for clothes with her aunt and grandma.  However, she surprised us both, and ended up getting a pair of boots that are just amazing.   Something about them just struck her as cool, and she ended up dancing around for us the rest of the day, just showing off her grown-up shoes. 

I really love buying toys for the grandkids, but find myself wondering, is it too soon to think about clothes for a little girl for a gift?  I remember thinking clothes and shoes were duds as gifts, but she mentioned several times how much she would love a red wool coat for Christmas. 

You can bet it wouldn't be her only present, but I'm still back and forth on this one.  I'll keep you posted on what I decide.

Your granddaughter is a little young to make the leap into preferring clothing, but it happens sometimes. I'm much happier buying toys and games, but, hey, whatever makes them happy!
