Amanda will have the opportunity to dress up like a cowgirl at school in a couple of weeks. She's been a little preoccupied with how she's gonna' pull it off when the only thing western she owns is a pair of pink hand-me-down cowgirl boots. Hey, if you ask me (which no one ever does, btw.) the cowgirl boots are the main attraction. Add some jeans, shirt and a bandana around yer neck, and it's time to GIDDY-UP!
Today after school Amanda had an idea about her cowgirl ensemble:
Amanda: Mom, could we go to Claire's tonight?
Me: No, why?
Amanda: Because I want to see if they have some cowgirl earrings there for my outfit.
Me: Cowgirl earrings? Are there such a thing?
Amanda: I don't know, that's what I need to find out.
Me: Shouldn't we figure out what you're going to wear with your boots, before going out and looking for earrings?
Amanda: Mom, FIRST you buy the earrings THEN you find an outfit to go with them.
Wow. I guess that girl-logic is just something we're born with, huh? I'll admit to having bought a pair of shoes before, and then searching and searching for an outfit to wear them with. But buying earrings first? I couldn't be more proud. (** sniff sniff **)
