Anyone ever have the experience of entering the Stride Rite with your child to get new shoes and you leave with shoes one and a half sizes larger than the shoes your child wore into the store?
Happens every single time to me and every single time, I spend the next half a day trying to convince myself that I am not a bad mother. Just the image of my poor darling’s toes crammed up into the end of their shoes every day and I didn’t even notice!
“Didn’t we just get new shoes?” I say. This coming from the girl who asks, “Wasn’t it just July?” when it is in fact the end of December!
