You might recall that Megan has had a mild obsession with UGGS but with a $120+ price tag and her track record for destroying boots within 6 weeks, she knows it's up to her to raise the money for them.
So for Christmas, whenever a family member would ask her what she wanted, she would promptly say, "Money." And then I would promptly say, "She's saving for a pair of UGGS."
Well, a week before Christmas, we spent a delightful morning with a dear friend and her kids, eating breakfast at her house in our jammies (If you've never done this with a friend before, I highly recommend it! The girls and I literally rolled out of bed and into the car, and over to her house where we ate and gabbed COMFORTABLY for almost 4 hours! So much fun! Especially since I wasn't the one cooking! Hee hee!)
ANYWAY, while we were there, Megan spotted a pair of UGGS in her friend's bedroom. When she asked about them, the friend informed her that they were too small for her and that she could have them if she wanted.
OH MY WORD. You would have thought the heavens had opened up! Megan came running in with the UGGS, exclaiming that her friend had given them to her because they didn't fit her anymore!!! I looked at her mom questioningly, who assured me that they were in fact too small, and that they were Meg's for the taking if they fit.
Well you KNOW they FIT!! Meg was gonna' make SURE of THAT.
The rest of the afternoon went something like this ...
Mom. It's only been 10 minutes and I almost forgot I have UGGS!!
Mom, do you think that girl saw that I have UGGS?
Mom, look! She's wearing UGGS, and SO AM I !!!!
Later that night, Meg's prayer was:
Dear Jesus, thank you for this day.
Thank you that I could get U-G-G-S, EEEEEE!!!!!
And thank you that milk is a part of this world.
In Jesus' name, amen!!
Here's a photo of Meg that afternoon at her first eye exam. Of course, when I told her I wanted to take a picture of her she said, "Okay, but be sure to get my UGGS."
It will be a sad day, nay, an UGGly day when these no longer fit.
Until then, she's loving every minute of it!!
