Mark My Words…

….Uggs are this generation’s parachute pants. I have to give my husband credit for this one. He said it last night as my 12 year old daughter walked away from us with a flip of her hair.

I’m pretty sure he’s right. About 75% of the junior high girls at Hannah’s school wear these modern day moon boots and they pay a small fortune for them. If you’re not familiar with them, they look a bit like what Ringo Starr wore in Caveman. (oh, and yes, that is Dennis Quaid wrestling a dinosaur).
I’m placing a bet with Hannah that in 10 years, she will regret ever owning a pair – in fact, I’m taking lots of pictures so that at her wedding, I have plenty of ammo for embarrassment. I’m hoping that she takes the bet – that way, I can pay back my father for betting me that the bell bottoms of the 70s would ever come back in style. For the last time, dad, my jeans are boot cut – NOT bell bottoms.
