Mia and I go thrifting quite often. By often, I will admit to twice a week. Yes... twice a week sounds reasonable. My grandmother actually volunteers for a local hospital thrift two days a week. So, whenever I drop Barb off, Mia and I visit our regular shops. It is a lot of fun to go with Mia. Of course she loves to look at the toys, and the housewares department interests her more and more each visit. She enjoys being very careful with the mugs and plates and has taken to straightening the displays that need a bit of tidying up. She always has tons of questions about the all the stuff she finds.
A couple of days ago, we were at our favorite shop. I was looking through a box of scarves. Mia was checking out some shelves beside me when I suddenly heard - in a very matter of fact voice -"Mom, we must buy this hat." I look over and she has this hat on. Needless to say, I took one look and marched directly to the cashier. She has worn it everyday since. Pretty good eye for three, right? I swear, I laugh every time I see her walking down the hallway with it on.
