Megan is OBSESSED with UGG boots.
We cannot go anywhere that she doesn't point out every child she sees wearing them.
While she knows my stance on the subject (mom can't justify spending $150 on a pair of boots for a child who has destroyed every boot she's ever worn to date ... not to mention the fact that she would grow out of them before the following winter), she still feels that if she points out ALL the young girls wearing them, that eventually I'll crack.
Last week it happened again. We were out somewhere when Megan said, "Mom, look!! That girl has UGGs!"
Just when I was ready to scream, For the love of all that is good and holy, if your own MOTHER doesn't own a pair of UGGs, YOU certainly aren't going to get a pair!! Amanda, saw my distress, and pulled me aside ...
Amanda: Mom, I know why they're called UGGs.
Amanda: Because when parents see how much they cost they yell 'UGH'!!
Finally. Someone gets it.
