"have you heard of this kid shoe brand - something and lily?"
"Jack and Lily? Sure! They are kind of high end kid shoes."
"Well we just got them in here at Costco. They are really cute." Pause. Did my husband just say something was "really cute"?
"Okay. But you know, we have a bizillion shoes here that Zac and Bianca gave us for the baby. I don't think we need anymore shoes."
"Well they are really cute. There is this pink and brown pair I like." Did he just say "really cute" again?
"Uh, okay. How much are they?"
"They are $15. I think I'm going to get them. Well I gotta go. See you when I get home." Click.
Okay, I know I've been complaining about spending money lately. I know we're on a tight budget right now and everything keeps breaking down and certainly we don't need another pair of shoes for a baby that already has about 100 pairs. But heck, when a father calls from work and wants to buy his daughter a pair of pink and brown "really cute" shoes - well who am I to argue with that?
