Am I the Only one who Cares About my Popularity?

I was reminded of the challenges of raising a tween while shopping yesterday for back-to-school clothes with my 11-year-old.  Sounding more like a politician than a 6th grader, her response to an outfit I declared inappropriate was “Am I the only one who cares about my popularity?!”

Later, when I questioned what took her so long in the dressing room, she said she was “dancing in front of the mirrors.”  She said this in a tone that implied this was perfectly normal.

Then there were the cartwheels in the Skechers store.  Of course.

One response to “Am I the Only one who Cares About my Popularity?

  1. There’s nothing like shopping with an 11 year old😊
    Until you shop with a twelve year old…….
