Besides a baby dressed adorably in a faux fur vest?
The last documented picture of my child wearing shoes.
And as you will notice, she wasn’t quite sturdy in her person yet, so was really in no position to argue about foot ware.
Well, she is now. And like many things in her short little lifetime, she has a strong opinion about shoes.
And she is anti.
Stupid Mommy, feet go in MOUTHS, not in shoes…
It is my fault, really. All of these books said not to constrict her little feet with shoes because it hinders early walking, and I had big dreams of baby athleticism, but here we are at 12+ months, and no walking, and no shoes.
Having some ladies time with her Aunt Cait, sans shoes
On the town with Daddy for the Fourth, no shoes.
Crushing this young boys spirit/getting bossy at the gym daycare, no zapatos.
Which I can’t wait for because she is on the move and even if it means having to run after her for the rest of my days, it is better than holding a child trying to defy you with all 24 pounds of her surprisingly strong body because she wants to crawl around on the floor at the aquarium.
Me giving in and finally letting her bare feet touch the aquarium floor. I am so ashamed. But she was so happy!
Problem is, when I put shoes on her, if she physically can, she will rip them off immediately and throw them. If I put on a few pairs of magic gladiator esque shoes that will not come off, she sits there and looks at me like ‘what have you done, these things are obviously useless to me now’, like I just cast her feet in lead.
Cruising the streets of Chicago, rain gear on, shoes off. And I actually super tried this day, but she kicked her shoe literally into a gutter to be lost forever.
Are there any magic shoes out there that stay on, and that babies like? I don’t even care if they are cute at this point. Chick needs some foot gear.
