Miss C has been asking, nay begging, me to take her shopping for a pair of boots. Apparently a couple of her friends have been sporting boots and being a fashion conscious girl and a trend spotter, Miss C has now declared boots as the must have fashion purchase for fall and winter for 6-year-old girls. Due to various and sundry ailments and illnesses, such as Miss A’s persistent hacking cough and PRNFH (Perpetual Runny Nose From Hell), mama has just not felt up to a shopping trip. This is truly a sad of affairs as I’ll take any excuse to hit Target.
Earlier this week Miss C brought home a school assignment to make an animal habitat in a small box. She chose to make an ocean habitat and I told her I’d get a small sturdy box from work since we don’t have any shoe boxes at home.
“But mommy we need to go buy shoes so we can get a box!”
I knew instantly what she was getting at and raised my eyebrows at her. “Well, we don’t need to buy shoes. I can bring home a nice box from work.”
“But we can go buy BOOTS!”
I’ll give her an A for both persuasive technique and persistence.
