Shopping with mother?

I’m Cathy Huang, and I’m 16. Welcome to my blog. This week I’m writing about shopping with your mother. Thanks for reading!
Have you ever been shopping with your mother? I’d like to hear you say “Yes, and it was fun.” But are you really telling the truth? I went to the shopping mall yesterday with my mom. She wanted to buy me a dress for her birthday party. She’s going to be 50 next weekend. “So what’s the problem with that?” I hear you ask.
Well, the problem is, my mother always wants to buy me what she wants, not what I want. And we want very different things. I tried on a beautiful red dress, but she said it didn’t fit. (It was very short!) Then I tried on a long skirt, but she didn’t like the color. (It was purple!) I was in and out of fitting rooms all day and we couldn’t agree on anything. She rolled her eyes and complained about everything I tried on. It was so depressing. And so boring. By 5 o’clock my feet were killing me and I still didn’t have a dress for the party.
Next time Mom wants to take me shopping, I’m going to tell her my room is a terrible mess and I have to clean it now. I know it’s not very nice to lie, but shopping with my mother is not fun. And, I’ve just seen a fantastic dress on eBay. It’s so chic. I’m going to look amazing at Mom’s party.
