A couple of weeks ago, my brother came into town (he lives in Arizona). For mom's birthday, he bought her a gift card to one of her favorite places-Bath & Body Works. A while back, I instituted a new family rule: If you buy mom a gift card, you have to take her to spend it. It just didn't seem fair for me to hog all the fun ;) If you haven't gone shopping with mom then you probably don't understand why I am enforcing this rule. I don't think my brother fully understood the chore it is to take my mom out. After his experience last week, I don't think he'll be buying her anymore gift cards.
My brother so graciously agreed to let me share his story of his shopping experience with mom. I've had a lot of adventures with mom, but this one almost takes the cake. She is definitely getting harder and harder to take out! I'm posting the link to his blog so you can read it straight from the horse's mouth. The first part of his post is catching his readers up to speed (if you are a consistent reader of mine, you have already heard most of it). You can either read from his point of view or scroll down under the asterisks to read about his adventures with mom at Bath & Body Works.
