Cason: Mom! Thskhdhfi!!!

Me (in another room, yelling back): I can't hear you! Come in here!

Cason (yelling louder): Adjfhadfh!!!

Me: I STILL CAN'T HEAR YOU!

Cason: DJEJJJFHGHSKDFGHSDJHFGH!!!!!!!

Me: I CAN'T HEAR YOU!! COME IN HERE AND TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED TO TELL ME!

Cason (comes in the room...suddenly becomes quiet and mumbles): dgsjasfdgjjadhsf.

Me: Ok, I can't hear you when you mumble.  Tell me again.

Cason: I've been saying, "Nevermind."

So glad we cleared that up.

Do you have any of those words that your kid or maybe you, when you were little, said funny and it somehow just became part of your family's vernacular?  We have a few of those.  One of those is the word "boops."  Cason called my father in law's boots that when he was little and it just stuck.  We always call boots "boops" now.  I know.  Our family is so adorable you can't stand it. 

I never thought of myself as a "boot" person.  Flats?  Yep.  Flip flops?  Duh.  Then I got a pair of black suede knee high wedge boots last year and I love them.  LOVE THEM.  Since then, I've been looking for the perfect pair of brown boots.  While shoe shopping with a friend a few weeks ago, I found them. 

Behold. 

The Jessica Simpson ( I know) Chad boot in Western Whiskey. 
The problem?  They are a mere $200 ( I've actually seen them as low as $144...still expensive).  I don't mind occasionally spending money on shoes.  But I've never spent that much. 

But, man.  I can't quit thinking about those boots.  I would love to have them for family pictures in a few weeks.  I'm trying to think of what I can sell to buy those boots.  I've sold all my baby stuff.  What about a kidney?  What about a kid?  Any takers? JOKING.......  Kind of. 

So, Colin, if you're reading this (you aren't), and you need an idea for a Christmas gift, this is it.

Just putting that out there.
