maya fights back (guest post)
I know it’s been a while since my last guest post but I’ve been really busy juggling all the extracurricular activities my mom has me in so that I’ll stay out of her hair. But I had to put everything aside so I could address my mom’s last post about my new Uggs.
Look, I usually take my mother’s crazy antics in stride but when she attacks my character and calls me spoiled? That’s just not acceptable, especially since I am not spoiled! I’m just a product of my environment and really, how can that be my fault?
Just the other day, for example, I went to my friend’s 1st birthday party and not only did she have Build-A-Bear set up a little bear-making factory at her house but she had a woman in a bubble in the middle of the pool!
Of course now I want the same thing at my next party, but when I asked my mom and she said, “We’ll see.”
I’m old enough to know this means there will be no bubble woman. Instead I’m sure we’ll just have the same faulty pinata that we’ve had the last 6 years – the one we have to beat to death to open up. My mom can be really cheap sometimes.
Anyway back to the Uggs: they aren’t even that extraordinary, especially since this girl at my school wears Louis Vuitton sneakers every day! I freak out a little bit every time I see her wielding a paintbrush in art because I have a feeling that no amount of Oxi Clean can get red paint out of a pair of leather Louis.
In any case you’d better believe I’ll be scouring eBay listings to make sure that my Uggs aren’t for sale. I’m pretty sure that in the past my mom sold some of the other stuff that’s mysteriously disappeared from my closet. She denies it but I know better. Let’s just say my mom’s first pair of Tory Burch shoes coincided with my first pair disappearing.
