As the kids head back to school--and beg us for the latest in Hannah Montana gear or shoes that cost more than healthcare--we got nostalgic thinking about the things we desperately wanted but didn't get.
The momlogic staff reminisces about what they missed out on, from Earth Shoes to zippered jeans.
Back to school shopping can be such a bummer--especially when a kid wants something so badly and the parent flat out refuses. But remember when the roles were reversed and you were the kid? We all dreamed of that one item and begged and pleaded with our parents. We all got over it--and so will they.
What did you want SO badly and didn't get?
|Jill: "Earth Shoes" were in--and I wanted them in the worst way, but my mom bought me saddle shoes instead. When I look at them now, they were pretty ugly--not sure what I was thinking."|
|Andrea: "When I was in junior high school, all the girls wore Chemin de Fer jeans. I only had two or three but I always wanted more--I was like a junkie."|
|Julie: "I wanted these jeans with Minnie Mouse on roller skates embroidered on the pocket."|
|Jackie: "Pony high tops and Jordache Jeans. But I often ended up in my brother's hand-me-down Levi's."|
|Annie: "A Benetton sweater and Guess jeans with a zipper at the bottom."|
|Melissa: "White jeans! I begged for them!"|
