Did you know that apparantly Vivica Fox is the new in-house
HAHA!!! Shoot! Grandy is digressing already!!! For the record, I do like you, Vivica. You're beautiful. JUST SAY NO!!
Anyway...boy did I start this with a tangent...Grandy's son apparently believes that Grandy works for this same psychic friend's network.
Here's the scene:
(Two weeks ago)
Him: Mom, can I get some new shoes?
Me: Why? Do yours not fit?
Him: No, their fine. They're just starting to break down.
Me: (nerding out on a budget with taxes coming) Honey, I'll see about working that in on the next pay period, if you can wait until the end of the month, okay?
Me: Your feet are alright in them?
...Fast Flipping Forward to this past Sunday...
Him: Mom, can we get me some new shoes yet?
Me: (looking at his feet) We're NOT at the end of the month yet, honey. We just had your birthday. Are your feet alright?
Him: Yeah, they're just breaking down.
Me: Hang in there, buddy. Just a little over a week (trying to fix the instant gratification that runs rampant in the Grandy household).
...enter Hubby...blah blah - let's go look at some - blah...
Go to mall. Walk into exactly 8 shoe stores trying to find HIS shoes, that he MUST have, that are under $70 (not getting anywhere).
Me: Well let's at least try some on and see where we're at. Maybe we can get "this" brand, rather than "overly-priced" brand?
Him: (pouting) I suppose.
Me: Let's get a size and fit at least.
Sales-lady: What size?
Me: Well let's see, his size is currently 8.5...let's try a 9 or 9.5.
Sales-lady: Okey- Dokey!
He tries on the 9 - no good
Tries on the 9.5 - no good
Sales-lady: Mom...it would appear his shoes are still too small.
Me: (flashing mother of the year signs and images of CPS at her front door in her head) Um... let's try a 10?
Sales-lady: Okey-Dokey! (Twit)
Yes folks...Grandy is again up for mother of the year points. Apparently I have been making my son get around in shoes that were 3 sizes too small.
The better part? Got his report card on Friday.
How did he get a "B" in P.E.?
The shoes in his locker are 7.5.
HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW?? I thought it was because they were looking like this...
Good thing he's cute because he's NOT earning extra credit in his communication skills any time soon.
