I took my DD 9 yrs old into NYC yesterday. I usually go into NYC to shop once a month, alone, it is my time to myself, I usually meet a girlfirend for lunch and shopping on Madison Ave. So yesterday I took dd, she asked for a bag to carry, so I gave a small pink LT hobo I purchased to give to her (but had not b/c she claimed to be a Tom-boy). She wore a skirt and off we went, we had a GREAT time, she was so sweet, she held my hand all the time! We stopped by the Tods store and she asked me to buy her a particular bag but ouch, I can't spend that kind of money on a 9 yr old! For me yeah, that's one thing but for a 9 yr old. I'll give the pink LT for now, but back to my original ? What age have you fellow purse lovers given your dd's or gdd's bags? Thanks!
