Speechless Saturday: Paige in Boots

I'm not ashamed to admit it - I am totally turning Paige into a Mini-Me! Yesterday Daniel and I stopped by Old Navy so he could get a new pair of jeans and I couldn't help but make a beeline to the children's section. See, ever since I purchased my slouchy brown boots, I've been on the lookout for identical ones for Paige. Don't judge - you know every girl needs a perfect pair of slouchy brown boots for Fall! So I spotted a great pair and as I searched for Paige's size,  Daniel walked up behind me. Here is the conversation that followed:

Daniel: What are you doing?
Me: Ummm... what? Nothing. Nothing. I'm just looking for something.
Daniel: Paige doesn't need shoes. She isn't even walking.
Me: She does. She desperately needs brown slouchy boots.
Daniel: What? Why? What 8-month-old needs brown boots?
Me (trying to distract him): Don't worry about it. Are you going to try on those jeans or what?
Daniel: Yeah. But are you seriously going to get Paige these boots?

And then it happened. These words literally came out of my mouth as naturally as if I was saying my name and phone number.

Me (in an exasperated, unnecessarily loud voice): YES! I planned Paige's ENTIRE Fall/Winter wardrobe around these boots. We NEED the brown slouchy boots!
Needless to say, we got the boots. Mama always wins : )
