So, it's that time of year again, time to go Easter shoe and/or sandal shopping for my girls. You would think it would be easy, cute little white sandals or flats for an 8 year old and a 5 year old. Nope, not even close. When did kids shoes become so, well, adult? 3 inch heels on a child's size 9 shoe is a bit much for me. As for shoes in a child's size 1? Well, let's just say the wedge heel seems to be the "In" thing.
Why do kids who don't walk, but run everywhere need heels? Do they really need the added height? Or the broken ankles? They have the rest of their lives to complain about how "OMG These heels are killing me" and "Oh man, my feet hurt from these shoes, but they're SO sexy".
Why do people feel the need to rush them? I remember when I was a kid, we had white flats, black flats, pink flats and then you had cute little sandals. Now when you go shoe shopping for the kiddies it's as if "Shoes for Hookers" has gone miniature! WHY???
So, needless to say, after hours of searching, I finally found shoes that while not exactly kid-like, were more appropriate for them. Not an easy feat! (pun intended lol)
Now...I am just sooo looking forward to shopping for summer clothes and bathing suits for them... hmmmm, maybe I'll just learn how to sew....
