Crazy-Making

How do you drive 4 boys and a baby batty? Force them to go shoe-shopping with their mother. Who happens to be shopping only for herself. And is feeling very indecisive. And is trailed by the only happy kid in the bunch-- a barefoot delighted 3 year old trying on every shoe in sight, nevermind that every shoe in sight is a size 8. Ladies size 8.

Just call her Imelda.

Or maybe that should be my name, since I prevailed against the afore-mentioned overwhelming odds and-- gasp-- bought two pair!

My daughters (7 & 9) have recently developed an interest in shoes, so now they actually ask me to go shoe shopping.

It's not a total win-win situation, though - now they've started giving me their opinion on the shoes I'm buying, "No, mom. Those are just plain weird."

Everyody's a critic.

The shoes with the blue laces are so nice!
I wouldn't be able to pull off the wearing of them, though. I wear a 7WW, with a very narrow heel. Little sneakers like those don't style very well at all. Sigh.

Your 3 year old daughter is quite a fashionista girlie. Being glad to go shopping is beyond my understanding.

Fun shoes, especially the sandals. You are a very brave mama, and I am thrilled you "prevailed". It's great to see the mama get something new, too!

You know what my famous saying is???

MAMA NEEDS A NEW PAIR OF SHOES.

Just like that. Loud, obnoxious, and in all caps.

And if mama ain't happy, nobody's happy!

Oh, I love both pairs, but especially the sneakers with the blue laces. So fun!

thanks for visiting my site last week -- I'm just now making it over. I thought about commenting on the music post, but I'm not sure I could have thought of anything new! ;-)
