UGG-ly Situation

Hannah announced midday that she will no longer be attending preschool.

I was really surprised to hear her say it. She usually loves school, begs to go on days off and get ticked off at me when I pick her up at noon, "Why can't I be a full day kid, mommy?" (Because mommy and daddy cannot afford to send you full day, sweetie.) No, I have never actually said that to her.

So...needless to say I knew something must be wrong. My first thought was that she was getting picked on because she has glasses. (I would be in that classroom so quickly tomorrow giving a little lesson on why some children need glasses and how we are different.) But no, that wasn't it. A little girl, we'll call her P, told my daughter that she cannot play with her- BECAUSE HANNAH DOESN'T HAVE UGGS!!! Are you flipping kidding me?!?!? Apparently a few of the girls do have Uggs and are now the elite preschool crowd. Much to Hannah's surprise she does not have real Uggs, she's got a knock-off pair that I bought a Target. She was happy with them and didn't know the difference...UNTIL NOW! I am sorry, I am not spending that kind of money on a pair of boots for my preschooler. I love her, I want her to be fashionable, but I refuse to spend that kind of money, I DON'T EVEN HAVE UGGS~ugg Pictures, Images and Photos

So this little girl told Hannah that only the girls with real Uggs can play with her. I think there are like 3 kids with them. I just can't even believe this is happening in a preschool-my god. I told Hannah that she should try to play with someone besides P tomorrow, that there a plenty of nice little girls to play with. I also told her I would talk to her teachers in the morning when I drop her off.

Is my kid going to be an outcast because I won't buy her $90 boots?

What is up with kids these days?

Shouldn't my preschooler be worrying about what color paint to use rather than the brand name of her boots??


  1. Hey, thanks for the comment. I'm so new at this...happy blogging : )

  2. I seriously hope you're joking. That is the most RIDICULOUS thing I have ever heard. Preschoolers?! What is the world coming to?!
