I know this topic comes up often about kids and Coach, and how some people view young girls with Coach bags as spoiled, etc, and I always get annoyed because I know my daughter has nice things, and I also know that she more than deserves them. A prime example and my brag - my daughter is 12 (13 on St. Patricks Day). Yesterday she took the SATS. Yes, the regular SAT test. She was one of a handful of students chosen by Johns Hopkins University in a scholastic talent search to be allowed to take the same SATs that the college-bound students take, just as an introduction to the test, to get an idea of what its all about, etc. We told her she didnt have to if she didnt want to, no pressure, just if she wanted to challenge herself then we supported her. So she spent 5 hours yesterday morning taking the SATs! She said the language section was okay, but the math was hard! I'm sure! So today when I went to the store to look for my purse (another post!), I took her with me to pick something out for her efforts. I dont care if she scores a zero on the test, the fact that she put forth the effort makes me very proud of her. She picked up the heritage stripe wristlet in green (which is really tiny!) - it was a tight fit for her phone, ipod and camera, so I suggested this instead. They had to order the color, but she'll be getting it this week and wearing it proudly. And I couldnt be more proud of her. She had midterms on Friday, SAT Saturday, and more midterms tomorrow - quite a workload for 12.
