Mom, this blog post is dedicated to you and these boots that you bought when we went shopping together in which I knew …WE BOTH KNEW… that when you asked “should I get them??” and I said “YEAH you’ll be the hippest mom on the block!” and you said “I’ll wear them!” and I said “YEAH YOU WILL!”, unfortunately, instead they would travel from the shoe box to the shoe pile in the garage, awaiting that moment of recognition and appreciation when you decided to wear them out.
Too bad I got a hold of them over winter break. I apologize for adopting them as my own before you even offered them to me but, honestly, we both knew how this would unfold.
Here’s to more impulsive buys and subsequent hand-me-downs!
