Me: “For your birthday, we can have a girls day and go shopping if you want”
Mila: ” oh great! Can it be unlimited credit?”
Me: “errm non….”
Mila turned 11 a a couple of weeks ago. As we were staying with some friends near Cap-Breton, we went shopping in Hossegor. I’m sure if you are mums of pre-teens you’re going through the same thing than me but the days of having fun buying clothes for my daughter are **OVER**!
I used to be able to buy her and most importantly dress her, in gorgeous Liberty print dresses and blouses with smocks but now the sole mention of a dress and she looks at me in disbelief if I was completely mad.

I got 10 seconds of stillness and then, she went off running with Lucas, jumping on the trampoline. True to be told, she is on the trampoline ALL THE TIME and I think if you have the space, it’s the best thing to keep the kids active rather than having them glued to their iPad! In addition, her dad built her a mini-Accrobranche so she is constantly doing a circuit from the trampoline to the tree house, hanging on the trapeze, pulling herself from the strength of her arms to the top of the rope and jumping back on the trampoline (last night she was training to be a Spy!)
