Mommy is a shoe girl… or she WAS anyway, before I came along; not only did I change the size of her feet, but chasing after me necessitates more sensible footwear than her former favorite purple suede heels. Nowadays, her shoes are a steady rotation of snowboots and sneakers. BORING.
Cute little shoes for me are fun to look at, but generally beyond any reasonable budget. (Ummm, hello, Stride Rite? Those are some supercute mandals, but $40 is a bit much. You realize I’ll outgrow them in about 10 minutes, right?) I am completely in LOVE with the Lacoste toddler sneakers, but flying cross country and ripping them from Hudson’s feet would probably be wrong.
So when Mommy glanced across the Marshall’s aisle from where she was pining over the most perfect nude pumps, and saw the double-tongue special-edition Dr. Seuss toddler Converse sneakers for 60% off? Well, they were pretty much definitely coming home with us – I’m lucky they had my size!
