When I was a little girl I was in love with the movie Aladdin. I would drive my brothers nuts by having to watch it over and over again. Even when I wasn’t watching it I would be singing the songs on the top of my lungs. This movie just meant so much to me and I loved watching this princess breaking away from the normal traditions just to be able to marry for love. She knew that she was not a prize to be won. Plus she had a tiger as a pet!
Every year we would go on a vacation to Boston right after christmas. We would walk around Quincy market and shop at all the little stores there. I knew that they had a Disney store so I brought all the money I had saved in my little piggy bank with me on our trip. When we got there I begged my mom to be able to go right to the Disney store, she knew how much I wanted to go there so she said of course. I can still remember the excitement as we walk through the doors into this huge store of dreams. My money was burning this huge hole in my pocket and I knew I wanted to spend my money on something from Aladdin but I didn’t know what I had wanted.
After awhile of walking around the store for I saw the jewelry case. There in a spinning case I saw this beautiful Jasmine watch. It was purple with Jasmine’s picture on it with a small gem. I used to think it was a real diamond! I asked my mom if I had enough money for it and thankfully I did. I was so excited to be able buy this treasure for myself. I would wear my jasmine watch every single day. It brings me so much joy that my mom had saved that watch when I thought I was to old for it. Now my daughter gets to have that same joy that I had and is able to wear my old Jasmine watch everywhere.
