Loving a good pair of shoes, and trying to get the 'mom' out of my wardrobe, I went to look in the Ladies section. There they were - amongst silver tramp shoes and mom style white runners - black peep toe heels. Source
|Hot hot hot!! Me likey!|
LD: Mooooooom, why are you trying on those shoes?
Me (Men of all ages just don't get shoes!!) : Cause they are pretty and make me tall like Daddy. ** I couldn't say they made my
LD: But moooooom, those aren't your shoes.
Me: I know, but I wish they could be.
LD: No, I mean they aren't mom shoes.
This is where in my mind I say "Well duh! Kind of the point Dude!"
Me: What do you mean 'mom shoes'? What kind of label is that? (This is were I completely get defensive with a 6 year old who innocently made a statement about shoes.) They are are fun shoes. I can wear fun shoes. I am a fun kind of mom.
LD: Mom, they are NOT mom shoes
Me: Well show me a pair of mom shoes.
LD : I dunno
Me: Well if these aren't 'mom shoes' show me a pair of mom shoes.
LD : You know mom - they are big and flat (He illustrates the point by holding his arms far and wide like a fisherman saying - 'the fish was this big'.)
LD: Mom shoes are big and flat, you're a mom, so you wear big flat shoes.
Then he rolls his eyes at my obvious bafflement.
He just told me I have to wear ugly shoes and then he has the nerve to roll his eyes at me?!?!?!
I'm going back tomorrow to buy those darn shoes - screw the budget!
