Is It Weird...?

...that I'm totally in love with Samantha's new shoes?  Like, love, love, love, love, love them?

Like, I'm totally jealous.  I want a pair of my very own.  But, alas, as is the problem with having been cursed with impossibly huge feet, many styles of shoes, this one included, if it even happened to come in my size, would look positively ridiculous.  Kind of like two giant barges parked themselves at the bottom of my legs, or like two mob-sized blocks of colored cement suddenly attached themselves along with the threat of chucking me off the pier for having even entertained the thought that those shoes might look okay on my gargantuan, size 11s. 

*sigh*

And so I project my own sense of style on my daughter, my sweet girl who goes along with it so complacently for now but is sure to rebel one day soon, who will likely one day opt for polo shirts (gasp!), shorts (horrors!) and sneakers (egads!) over what I would consider cute and fashionable.

And you know what?  I'll certainly enjoy it while it lasts.

LOVE those! What brand? Where did you get them? I think Ellie needs some (and maybe me :)

Oh my goodness not polo shirts! She could be preppie. If she is I can help with that look as I have the button down, navy/khaki thing down pretty well.

Might have to get Maddie some where ever did you get them?

They are super cute!!! I'd wear 'em!

The shoes say "Frisky" on them -to I'm assuming that's the brand? They were $12 at a Beachwear shop and they came in other colors. I haven't had a chance to look them up yet, though.

At least you can enjoy them through her. I was always a tomboy, so I enjoy girls things through Madison now.

I am curious about all of your daughter's clothes. Is that crazy? I'm in back-to-school shopping mode and am making myself a little crazy trying to find things that are cute AND manageable in terms of fine motor. And I was thinking about how Sammi always looks cute. Does she manage tights on her own, for example? do you have any sage advice?

Thanks, Cate! You'll find that most of the time I steer clear of actual pants on Samantha, and just have her in dresses or skirts with bike shorts or leggings underneath, all year round. I like the layered look, I like that they keep her legs nice and warm in the winter, and I like how easy they are to get on and off for her, as opposed to pants with zips/buttons/snaps. Sammi did pretty well with tights last year, and was able to get them up and down with minimal assistance (assistance usually just to ensure that she hasn't gotten her dress caught up in them!). That being said, her aide at school did tell us that she rarely used the bathroom at school. They only had 1/2 day Kindergarten. This year is going to be a different story - hopefully she uses the bathroom at school, and hopefully she doesn't have any problems with the tights! LOL
