Excuse me sir, you left your shoes

This is my son.  Isn't he darling?


He doesn't love to wear shoes.  He'd rather be barefoot on the lawn eating popsicles.   Or riding his little scooter in the driveway eating chocolate pudding.



He does have one pair of favorites that he's wearing here and they have Buzz Lightyear on them.  He sure loves that Buzz Lightyear.  But most little boys do.


Imagine my surprise when I walked into his room this week and saw these shoes lying in the floor.

These are not the shoes of MY baby boy.

These shoes are made for a much bigger person who plays competitive sports and throws them in a duffle bag when he runs out the door with his friends.  These shoes are worn by an adolescent who is grumpy when he's tired and complains about taking a shower.  That is not part of my life.  Not yet.

Isn't my son darling?


I'm blogging about my boy all week.  He turns 8 this weekend and I am just.not.ready

Amazing the things that hit you and show that they are growing. When did the clothes get so big? Turbo is almost seven--gah! no not going there yet.

Ohhh, I feel your pain...I wish I could time travel and go back and hold my babies (who are now 11, 13 and 16!).

Aw he is adorable!!! My youngest princess used to dislike wearing shoes - she was a barefeet girl all the way! Now she loves shoes, but hates wearing socks!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
