You Haven’t Been Here Before…

This is a reprint of a blog post from my original blog, which I then re-posted on my next blog. I’m hoping that this is the last time I change blogs. I do have different (read: more than two) readers so this will be new to most of you.

Also, I clearly remember this trip and there is no way it was five stinkin’ years ago.


I just love this story.

Sidenote- I do realize that it may sound a little weird to comment that I just love this story when I am referring to something I wrote. Just note that it feels weird to write, as well. So, now that we’re both feeling weird, here is the story.

Yesterday we went shopping with my sister, her two kids and our brood. Our first stop was the area’s Gap Clearance Center.

My sister has a boy, 2 1/2 years, and a girl, 9 months. My kids love my sister and their cousins, so any chance they get to be with them, they are right there. Well, my Julia (almost 5) is walking with my sister when a shirt catches her eye. She picks it up and brings it to me. It was a size 3, so it was to small for her and I told her so.

She takes the shirt back to my sister and says, “Here, Aunt Becky.”

Becky looks at her and says, “That’s nice, but I don’t need it.”

Julia says, “But you can buy it.”

Becky says, “I’m not buying a pink shirt for Brandon.”

Julia promptly replies, “You’ve never been here before, have you?”
