At the time, I had sang Take Me Out to the Ball Game to my boys before going to sleep for 10 years. So, I was inspired to find the perfect song to sing to Lily when she arrived. I could not find one. I was so excited to finally have a girl of my own, so I decided to write my own. With the boys permission I used the tune of their song.
Take me to the shopping mall
Take me to all the stores
Buy me some shoes and a matching purse
I am sure we will find one on sale
We will shop shop shop until we drop. We will have such a good time.
For there’s Claires, Target, and Just for Girls at every shopping mall.
Each week I am sharing a personal story, memoir or essay.
Until next time – a latte of sparkles & giggles,
