A Girl's Day

I've often heard mom's say eight is the age the mother/daughter relationship can grow friction as the girl is maturing and trying out new attitudes, etc.  Even though my girl is a very new 8, I have noticed  how much more mature she seems.  In an effort to give our relationship the one-on-one time our relationship needs, we spent the day Saturday together shopping, having lunch, and just being together.
This girl makes me so happy and I am loving watching her grow and experience life!
