fashion, life with mila
comments 10


Last weekend, Steve was away for the weekend on a business ski trip so Mila and I had a girly weekend..
Mila: “Maman, I would like to be like you and have everything like you. I want a bag, a blackberry, glasses and some lipstick too
Me: “umm…”
Mila: “I would like a bag like you!”
Me: “But you have lots of bags already! I’ve given you a very nice pink one with a big flower on”
Mila: “No, I want a bag like this” (pointing at my bag)
Me: “Aahhh (it’s in the genes)….well I promise you, I will give you one when you are older
Mila: “How old? Seven?”
Sadly for my beautiful daughter, not matter how many bags I can get my hands on in the shop, I’m not the kind of mother who will spend £200 on a bag for a five-years old…or on a seven-years old for that matter…:-)

I can’t wait for the Summer to arrive…

Le weekend dernier, Steve etait au ski avec le travail (oui je sais..) alors Mila et moi nous avons un petite weekend entre filles…
Mila: “Maman, je voudrais etre comme toi et avoir tout comme toi. I veux un sac, un blackberry, des lunettes et du rouge a levre aussi
Moi: “umm…”
Mila: “Je veux un sac comme toi!”
Moi: “Mais tu as deja beaucoup de sacs! Je t’en ai donne un tres joli rose avec une grosse fleur.”
Mila: “Non, je veux un sac comme ca” (en montrant mon sac)
Moi: “Aahhh (c’est dans les genes)….et bien je te promets que je t’en offriaris un quand tu seras plus grande”
Mila: “A quel age? Quand j’aurais sept ans?”
Malheureusement pour ma jolie petite fille, malgre tous les sacs que je peux avoir au magasin, je ne suis pas le genre de maman qui va offrir un sac a £200 a sa petite fille de cinq ans :-)

Il me tarde que l’Ete arrive…

  1. Haha, je reconnais! La mienne était pareille à son âge… et à 15 ans elle a développé à un goût pour le design et les grandes marques qui n’est pas du tout en rapport avec le montant de son argent de poche… ;)

  2. Brilliant story. I love kids and their naive and genius approach to things: I have a 4 year old and she asked if she could borrow my Camel nailvarnish the other day – oh well at least she tried :O)

  3. I have recently found your blog, and i think it is adorable. you are such talented writer and a real inspiration. and your daughter is so cute! Couldnt stop laughing about the bag-conversation you had, but have to say it sounds sensible to stick with pink-flower-bags as long as you can. Johanna xo
