for crying out loud! And it's not like I starved my kids or even deprived them of their allowance. I didn't even break the bank really. The total tally was $60, and I think that 4-pairs-for-$60 should earn me a spot in the Hall of Fame of Savvy Shoppers. And look at them. Just look at them! I spent thirty minutes in the store doing nothing but pushing them around in the cart drooling and battling my sense of guilt. I am about to spend about $600 on my kids' birthday party next weekend and phenomenal shoes are not on my list of items for party favors, but, hey, I'm working so hard for each and every birthday party of theirs and don't I deserve a party favor, too?
