Dancer and I went to work at the food shelf today, as we do every fourth Monday of the month. On the way home we stopped at Kohl's to do a little shopping for her since it was just the two of us. It is very hard to shop when Spark is with, he is very patient and well behaved, but girl clothes shopping isn't anything I expect him to have a very long attention span at. In fact, that he goes so willingly when he has to is amazing to me.
Dancer wants to have long shorts that come to her knees. We have had trouble finding any this spring but have kept looking because if she wants to be that modest I certainly don't want to persuade her otherwise. We found that Kohl's has racks and racks of long shorts so it was easy to find a couple pair.
Next was on to bra shopping. She always wears sports bras but they were insanely priced there so we looked at regular bras. Not having a clue as to what size she would wear in a regular bra I asked a woman wearing a name badge around her neck if they had a tape measure. Well, she says, they don't have a tape measure in the department but she keeps on in her bag at all times. Here the woman wasn't a Kohl's employee but a salesperson from a bra company. She measured Dancer, helped her pick out tons of things to try on and kept checking on her in the dressing room until she had a couple that fit her perfectly. I wholeheartedly thanked the woman when we were done and told Dancer how lucky she was that we had her to help us. People pay for professional bra fittings and customer service like that. It was like having a personal shopper. Dancer, of course, felt so grown up having this woman dote on her. She has been saying all night how glad she was that we asked for that tape measure. I thank God when good things, and people, like this fall into our laps even when we are doing something as mundane as shopping!
By the way, since the woman was so helpful, I will put a little plug in for their company, she worked for Warner's.
