Yes...those were my kids...

Yes, that was my daughter pouting in the corner as we asked the nice sales lady at the cute kids boutique to bring out a few sizes of....Uggs!

Yes, that was my daughter that told me "I don't want Uggs today, can we just do it tomorrow??!"
Disclaimer: Yes, I know I have lost my mind in buying an almost 5 year old Uggs, but have you seen these?? And you would not blame me if you knew that shortly dear hubby is putting me on a budget (can you guess why?) and I only have a limited time to grab these things while I can =) (love you Shane =)).

Yes, that was my daughter that just kept shaking her head as I explained that "Mama, Tara and Nicole have some and they are the best boots ever! You can wear them ALL the time just like you did your other furry boots". (I was at least smart enough to test run a much cheaper pair of boots last year to see if she would actually wear them, she LOVED them).

Yes that was my daughter that once the sales lady came back with the absolute cutest boots ever, tried to run away from her Mama, while Mama was trying to keep a smile and not make a scene in said boutique.

Yes, that was my daughter that once Mama got a hold of her, began throwing her skinny, but tall body around so that Mama could not hold her while starting to cry.

Yes, that was my daughter that started screaming crying "I don't want Ugg boots" while Mama was trying to pry dirty Keds off her feet, that were turned in so that she could not get them off. At this point Nonna is helping hold her down and trying to talk some sense into her as we have now caused a scene and Mama is just about to lose her mind.

Yes, that was my daughter that once she actually saw them, turned it off, took off her shoe and smiled while wiping tears and saying "Mama, these are like yours!!"

Oh yeah...Yes, that was my son that during all this took off his socks (not sure why his shoes did not make it out of the van), threw them across the sweet shoe section, and then was walking around barefoot...stroller on his back as he is still strapped in and can just carry it that way, taking down every pair of expensive baby shoes he can get his hands on and then throwing them as far as possible.
All in the name of an overpriced pair of boots....but can you blame me???
PS - I stole this post idea from Maggie !

HILARIOUS!!! I laughed out loud when I read the part about Owen running around barefoot with the stroller still attached! That is SO histerical!! LOL

I have had to 'fake smile' my way through MANY outings with my child!!

BTW, I bet all that was SO totally worth it cuz Claire looks ADORABLE in those boots!!! =)

I LOVE this post! Hilarious, I definitely laughed out loud! Haaa for the fake smile while you really want to knock some sense into them, in a good way of course! :)

And I totally feel you about buying things while you can before the new budget gets enacted, haha!

Kristy said...

Funny! That totally sounds like something Keira would do! Throwing a fit while getting something awesome is definition of drama, mama!!

Dallas said...

Cute boots!

Lane said...

Too funny! I love that Owen stands up and walks with his stroller. You could make that into a whole other post! :)
And Rachel on a strict budget?? Oh no! ;) Love you!

Tara Caire said...

looooooooooooove the boots! haha i can so picture claire doing that. I bet you didnt know if you should laugh or scream haha. the dreaded B word.. haha.. Drew is trying to put me on one too!

Brooke Bertalan said...

HAHAHAHA!!! Those boots and that sweet comment that they are like her mama's were totally worth the fight. She is so cute in her sweet Uggs. I have the perfect image in my head of Owen strapped into his stroller walking around with it on his back. Haha. It's hard to imagine that he is just a baby. I love your chaotic life with those two. They can't be any more precious than they are!

Shane said...

Uggs for a four year old who will out grow them in a month!?! Whats wrong with the cheap ones she had last year?

They do look cute!

The Heckathorns said...

HAHAHAHA! I love it! Girls are so dramatic, but then she realizes that they are pretty and just like mamas! HAHAHA! Bella had a pair of actual Uggs when she was tiny (someone gave them to us!) but now she only has the faux-Uggs...Jon's gone for a month, so real ones might just end up on her feet soon. ;) (i'll get them a size bigger than she needs so she'll be able to wear them for a while.)

Carolyn said...

OMG I would pay good money to see O do that with the stroller!! She looks too cute in those boots!

Rachel said...

For the record Shane, they are a size big and she can wear them for an extra year...that's your woman...always thinking =)!

Allie said...

Yes same to you and your 2! They are adorable! I look forward to reading more and its nice to meet you!! :)

Harris Family said...

The joys of kids! The boots are really cute...I can't blame you. She "needed" them, right?!?! This made me laugh out loud!!! I am not sure if it was the husband/budget part that I so closely relate to or your boy carry around his stroller on his back because he is still strapped in. Maybe both!

so are you saying this doesnt stop at age 3??? Crap!

Mandy @ Adventures of a Millennium Mom said...

So weird! I just posted pictures of my 19 month old in his new uggs! We must be on the same wave length, b/c I don't think it is a waste of money at all to buy a 5 year old (or a 19 month old) Uggs!Your little lady looks too cute in hers!!
