It’s All About the Shoes

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

It’s fun having girls.  I love sharing clothes and shoes (not everything, don’t panic)!  I really love spending the day shopping with them and watching them make creative choices on a shoestring budget.  They are good, ya’ll!  Definitely a gene shared with mama!

Ally had to work today (TJ Maxx) running the dressing rooms.  Not always the most fun since you’re sort of stuck off by your lonesome in boresville!  But the Lord had a little entertainment planned for her while she suffered through.  A young mom was shopping with her toddler and baby.  The toddler wobbled over to the shoe section and with all her strength pulled down a pair of high heels.  From the looks of it (to Ally) she hadn’t been walking all that long.  She proudly tells her mama to “Look shoes!”.  Mama keeps shopping and answers, “Oh yea!”.  What happens next just blows Ally’s mind.  She takes off her shoes, lines up the high heels side-by-side and slips her tiny little socked footsies right in.  Ally got such a giggle out of it and just couldn’t believe a baby would be so fascinated at such a young age with girly shoes.

To that I say…..DUH, GIRL!  hehe!

Actually, I smiled at her and flashed back to all the times she and her sister slipped their little fat feet into my heels.  There’s just something about those things.  A girl sees everything in a pair of shoes.  From her outfit to where she’ll wear them…to who she’ll see and how they’ll SEE HER!  I knew from the get-go my girls were full-blooded prissy pants.  It just came natural.  Just like it did for little miss toddler girl today.  Girls love shoes.  And who cares if they hurt?  If they look good, they’re worth it!

When it came time to go, the mommy said, “Put the shoes back” and she picked both up with all her muscles and stretched to place them back on the rack.  What that mommy doesn’t know is that very soon she’ll have a bit more trouble getting her to part with them.  Right, moms?

The grow up so fast…
