I really thought that having boys, I was going to squeak by without the drama of the "But Jenny has Guess jeans and a Cabbage Patch doll!". I figured I'd be buying ridiculously expensive tennis shoes at some point but instead, at this 6 year old, first grade point, I hear "Johnny has these awesome Silly Bandz, they're SO COOL, Mom, I want some, can I have some, hu, Mom? I want some Silly Bandz!" And because Aidan thinks they're awesome, Asher has also developed a taste for the trendier things in life. Of course, you know what that means, don't you? Yes, they throw down over them every single day, multiple times a day. So thank you for that, Silly Bandz people.
P.S. I acknowledge that Silly Bandz probably won't ask me to review their product or do a giveaway now. That's cool, I wouldn't do that to other parents anyway.
