That last post with all Polly Pocket shoes reminded me of something that my almost 6 year old said the other day. It went something like this...
DD: Mom, I made a new friend today.
Mom: Good for you.
DD: She is in first grade, she was wearing an orange shirt.
Mom: She sounds pretty special.
DD: Yeah,...(pause)...she wears the same pair of shoes every day.
Mom:(Gulp- realization of my own insane shoe fetish rubbing off on dd and making her judge new innocent friends by the boringness of their shoe style scares me into needing to have the 'shoe talk')Oh,dear, Honey about your shoes, not every body has a different pair of shoes for every outfit...
