Today was an errand running kind of day and my nine year-old niece was along for the ride.
Our first stop was Claire’s, a fashion and jewelry accessories store for girls, where my niece picked out a princess tiara, promptly placing it on her head as we left the store.
Our second stop was Starbucks.
My niece chose a kids sized hot chocolate paired with a pumpkin shaped sugar cookie.
We waited at the bar for our drinks. When the drinks were called out and pushed across the counter my niece noticed the top of her drink, “This is the best day of my life!! Nobody has ever put chocolate sauce on the top of my drink before!”
We stayed in the coffee shop to enjoy our beverages, that’s what grownups do.
She chose the bar seats and clambered up on her stool so she could watch the barista’s preparing drinks, “It’s hard to keep up with what they are doing, there are so many of them and so many coffees to make!”
