I should be voted mother of the year. Want to know why? Because Junior and I drove all over town yesterday trying to find these stupid Silly Bandz.
No one had any in stock, and most of the store refuse to tell you when more are coming in, because apparently they are afraid of being swarmed.
Really? Over shaped rubber bands?
But, being the great, awesome mother I am, I went online last night and ordered 48 of these stupid things for my girls. Why, you ask? I think it goes back to my childhood, and always being the kid who didn't have the latest "must have".
My girls have been talking about these things for a while now, but have only recently decided that they want some, because "all the kids have them". I know it's materialistic, but I don't want my kids to be the kid I was. Does that make sense? And if that means I have to spend, gulp, $13 on Silly Bandz, then so be it.
And it was totally worth it when I told them this morning that I ordered them, and they did proclaim me to be "the best mom ever!".
