Britney and Tami's parents decided that their young teens could benefit from having their own clothing allowance. Today was the first time that the girls could do their very own shopping.
Britney took her mother to the mall and made her purchases. When it was Tami's turn she went to one of the bargain stores.
That evening the girls were to have a fashion show for Dad, modeling all their new outfits.
Out came Britney. She was wearing a very fashionable outfit with matching accessories.
She then sat with Dad while Tami made her appearance. To Britney's chagrin, Tami came out again and again, each time with a different outfit on.
As Britney waited for her next clothing allowance, due in four months, she tired of her one outfit. Mom and Dad expressed their empathy and said, "Not to worry, Sweetie. You'll have another opportunity soon. It'll be interesting to see how you handle your money."
