Crazy-Making

How do you drive 4 boys and a baby batty? Force them to go shoe-shopping with their mother. Who happens to be shopping only for herself. And is feeling very indecisive. And is trailed by the only happy kid in the bunch– a barefoot delighted 3 year old trying on every shoe in sight, nevermind that every shoe in sight is a size 8. Ladies size 8.

Just call her Imelda.

Or maybe that should be my name, since I prevailed against the afore-mentioned overwhelming odds and– gasp– bought two pair!

  1. wtg mom….on the shoes and the kid-torture.
    LOL

  2. I am loving your new shoes!

    You have quite an incredible blog here. Thanks for dropping by my place so that I could make my way over here!

  3. I like the brown ones 😉

    I don't think I remember the last time I sucessfully shoe shopped. *gasp*

  4. My daughters (7 & 9) have recently developed an interest in shoes, so now they actually ask me to go shoe shopping.

    It's not a total win-win situation, though – now they've started giving me their opinion on the shoes I'm buying, "No, mom. Those are just plain weird."

    Everyody's a critic.

  5. I like them!

  6. The shoes with the blue laces are so nice!
    I wouldn't be able to pull off the wearing of them, though. I wear a 7WW, with a very narrow heel. Little sneakers like those don't style very well at all. Sigh.

    Your 3 year old daughter is quite a fashionista girlie. Being glad to go shopping is beyond my understanding.

  7. Fun shoes, especially the sandals. You are a very brave mama, and I am thrilled you "prevailed". It's great to see the mama get something new, too!

  8. They are so cute!

  9. Those shoes are amazing!! Great choice!! hehe! I drive my husband insane the same way, by bringing him and my toddler!

  10. Shoes are good. Very. Very. Good.
    🙂

  11. Shoe shopping, ahhhh.

    Glad you found TWO pairs, double the fun. Very cute!

  12. You know what my famous saying is???

    MAMA NEEDS A NEW PAIR OF SHOES.

    Just like that. Loud, obnoxious, and in all caps.

    And if mama ain't happy, nobody's happy!

  13. Oh! I like your tennies! Very cute!

  14. Oh! I like your tennies! Very cute!

  15. Oh, I love both pairs, but especially the sneakers with the blue laces. So fun!

    thanks for visiting my site last week — I'm just now making it over. I thought about commenting on the music post, but I'm not sure I could have thought of anything new! 😉
