They quickly became her favorites and she wore them everywhere!
Sadly, shoes wear out. (No, really I'm sad... I hate parting with my favorites!) Shoes wear out even faster whenever you're an active five/six year old always on the go. Needless to say Cuppy Cakes had to meet the trashcan.
Since they are her favorite Hubs went back to the store where they were purchased and asked them if they had any additional pairs. Turns out they are no longer carried ::sigh:: Hubs and I encouraged her to pick out another pair of sneakers but no pair of shoes (in the eyes of Monster) compared to her lovely Cuppy Cakes.
I thought about what I was going to do with Monster and her Cuppy Cakes. There were two options
1. Get her a new pair of shoes that aren't Cuppy Cakes and tell her to suck it up and deal with it.
2. Search the inter-webs for another pair of Cuppy Cakes and pay an outrageous price for shoes that she will only be able to wear for maybe six months.
Hmmm... So what did I decide to do?
|Ha, not really... |
Well, because I'm a shoe snob and I can't be a hypocrite. Two years ago one of my favorite pair of shoes met their end thanks to the
Anyway, Amazon, E-Bay, and various other sites didn't have them or had them in a size I didn't need. I eventually just searched in google images and clicked the link attached to the picture and eventually came across a Canadian website that had them!
Did you know it cost over $80 to overnight something from Canada to the east coast!?!? It does! ...haha that's why I didn't overnight them. I just did the basic shipping rate, which was $12. Still a lot for shipping, but I will suck it up. I think overall I paid close to $50 just for a new pair of Cuppy Cakes.
When the new Cuppy Cakes came I realized something... I GOT A SIZE TOO BIG! Fail! I explained to Monster that in another six months she would be able to wear the new Cuppy Cakes. After mornings of endless tantrums she finally accepted it. Last night Hubs and I were walking around the outlet mall with the girls and what should we find? CUPPY CAKES! CUPPY CAKES IN THE RIGHT SIZE! Of course we got them! Three pars of the same shoe in different sizes...
Yes, I am raising a shoe snob.... Don't judge me!
Oh my own shoe front... I recently bought these!
