One Spoiled Girl

RJ is looking forward to their investiture and camping this 2012. It is her first time to be away from home for a day that is why. But if there is one person who is more excited for her, it is hubby. He came home one day with a tent that he ordered online. It is just an overnight camping in school so RJ can just share a tent with her classmate but hubby prefers to have RJ’s own tent.

It is a nice big tent, enough to accommodate the three of us.

Hubby and I grew up with poor parents who can’t provide us everyting we need. Now that hubby has a good job, he makes sure to give RJ everything she needs. I am sure if we have snow here, he will buy RJ MSR Snowshoes too. One spoiled girl. But hubby said, he is not spoiling RJ (he’s so defensive, don’t you think?)…he just loves her so much.

Careful Parenting

The Girl Scout uniform we bought for RJ last year doesn’t fit her anymore so we had to buy a new one. I can’t believe how big she has grown in less than a year. Not only that, she is now more active and more adventurous. She was so happy when she heard they are going to have a tree planting activity and camping before the year ends.

Girl Scout

Last year when she asked me if she can join the Girl Scout I was hesitant to allow her. She hasn’t been away from us for more than a day and just thinking of her sleeping overnight on a campsite without us makes me worried. But then I realized she will grow as a person from her would be outdoor experiences and her bond with other kids outside their school wall. Besides, spending time outdoors is one of the best things a young person can do. Oh hell yeah, I know because I was once a Girl Scout. So why would I deprive my daughter from the same experience I did enjoy a lot?

So now after the new uniform, it seems like we need to buy a tent so I am browsing at Big Agnes tents. I would be more at peace if I know she is safe and away from mosquito bites even she is out there somewhere. No, I am not being overly protective. I’d rather call it careful parenting and I think all Moms feel this way.
