A shopping haven
As a parent, it isn't always easy to connect with your teenage children. As a mother, it is very, very difficult to connect with a teenage daughter.

I suggested we go to Birkenhead Point for some shopping and I got a shrug that I took as a yes. As we drove around the 'Bay Run' at Iron Cove, we spotted people running, mothers running with babies in prams, old couples strolling and holding hands. It was wonderful to see people exercising rather than exercising their fingers to text.

Parking the car, I noticed the first four hours are free and really, who needs that much time to shop?

Birkenhead Point, what a place. It wasn't just the shops, shops, shops, shops and shops, but it was the smile that I saw on my daughter's face (when she thought I wasn't looking).

Walking in from the Kathmandu entrance, her arms were folded over her chest with her mobile phone going off like a wasp buzzing with her WhatsUp connections. Then we saw shoes.

Walking past Muffin Break, I saw a Cherry Beans cafe where we sat for a coffee and banana bread to map out our shopping day.

There was such a lovely a view of the marina. The clouds were coming in but the refurbished Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre has a clear glass ceiling.

Valley Girl was on my daughter's hit list. She finished her drink then ran up to the shop front, turned to look at me, pointed to the door and went inside. They were having sales, she was very excited, I was pleased and all was well in my world.
Valley Girl = happy girl

From things for 'boys', girls wear, my wear, home wear, bedding, cafes, a food court, perfumes, lingerie, shoes, bags and accessories, I was exhausted by 3pm and the hit of the day was that I got three hugs and an I love you. Not bad really.

The sweet shop was a must, it was filled with lollies, lolly pops, and all kinds of sweets that took me back to my childhood. Very pretty and very inviting.

I ran into Coles and the fruit shop before heading home, I do have to add that she was silent on the way home and caught up on her missed messages, I was exhausted and didn't mind. The other plus was that we were there for 3 hours and 56 minutes and parking was free!
