There comes a moment in a mother’s life when her child does her proud. Either she learns to love her favorite sandwich or learns the melody to her favorite song. This moment came for me when I learned that Darla loves fashion.
First, there was the moment she realized that her favorite pair of gold Ralph Lauren slippers no longer fit. I struggled to shove her chubby little toes in, but took them off when I saw her foot was turning red. She tossed her head backward and yelled. I let her get it all out. When she calmed down, she picked up the shoe and tried to squeeze it onto her foot herself. I tried to distract her with a pair of pink converse, but she just whimpered and looked at the gold slippers longingly. When she wasn’t looking, I slipped the gold slippers into her drawer.
Second was when she learned to pose because she was wearing a Chanel necklace. This picture speaks for itself.
