Imagine what it was like going to four different stores and getting all four kids sized and trying on shoes in the toddler, girls' and mens' sections.
Yeah, that's how well it went.
At the end of it, we went home with four pairs of shoes, five pairs of clip-on earrings, two sets of hair bows for Easter, and Second Daughter picked out a stuffed unicorn to buy with her own money.
I sent Kansas Dad to a different location of one of the stores the next day to pick up the two other pairs of shoes. So while we didn't get them all in one swoop, I'm counting it a success because the kids didn't have to go to another store (and neither did I).
Additional information you didn't need to know about our shoes:
- First Son, who is ten, is now wearing a mens' seven and a half. Mens. 7.5.
- Second Son, who is three, is now wearing a half size larger than Second Daughter, who is five.
- Said three year old now adores the shoes he refused to try on at the last store.
- First Son really hates shoe shopping, so much so that his old pair had about six holes spread across the two shoes, but he would rather keep wearing them than get new ones.
- Second Daughter will only wear shoes that sparkle somewhere or somehow.
I anticipate keeping the blog quiet through Holy Week and maybe through Divine Mercy Sunday. Have a blessed Easter!
