apologized to my mother more. I was totally nasty to her when I was 13 - 15 years of age. I remember her taking me shopping for clothes & how angry I would get. Why do I bring this up? I took kt out for a new belt & a couple of items of intimate apparel. I refused to buy orange or blue bras - I can't afford to buy tops to go with those colors. What person does these days????? The belt issue - ughhhhh! She wanted a $30 belt - not likely. And then she hated the size. Who's going to know the size unless she tells the world. It was an ugly outing it may be days before I recover. kt's been losing her baby fat & is slimming out quite a bit. However she wants more. We work on healthy choices & portion control in this house. We don't talk size here - we talk fit & how it looks on you. I would expect by the start of next school year kt will be back to a healthy weight & an inch or two taller at the rate she is going. Saying all that, I really needed to spend the last 10 or 15 years apologizing for the attitude I gave my mom when shopping for clothes, getting my hair done, or any number of things that we did of a personal nature. Don't forget to tell your mom I love you . Don't forget to apologize for those nasty teenage years - it will come back to bite you in the behind.
