It’s inevitable that my child will have big feet. My feet are big because they have to be, this is the way God intended it for tall giants like myself. It wouldn’t make much sense to be 5’9” with size 5 feet, now would it? This is what I tell myself when I feel like I’m walking around on boats. So, it came as a big surprise when my child’s feet were super tiny until she was about 1 year old. She was still wearing newborn shoes when she was 9 months. Then, literally overnight, her feet exploded into the ginormous beasts that they are today.
It’s a good thing I’m a frugal bastard and decided to buy the majority of her shoes from the local consignment store. She only got to wear many of them just once or twice. Stride Rite be damned!
Her newest obsession is wearing our shoes. I guess she’s just trying to get used to her inevitable future of big footedness. What’s sad is that the girl can actually walk perfectly in our shoes - I’m not sure if I should be proud or scared. I’m a little bit of both, to be honest. Always looking for more photo ops, I was finally able to capture one of her shoe fetish moments on camera.
Here she is wearing a pair of my size 9 flip-flops! And managing to stand AND walk in them.
Happy Earth Day
