Shoe Shopping

I have a six year old daughter. She is starting first grade tomorrow and we bought her a very cute pair of white and pink slip on shoes for her to wear everyday to school. What we have not bought yet is her tennis shoes for gym days. Now, my daughter is extremely picky, and sensitive to how her shoes feel. So last night I took her out by herself to shop for a pair of tennis shoes. She wanted laceless shoes, so she doesn't have to worry about them coming untied.

Our quest started at the Children's Place where she found a very cute and sparkly pink pair that fit her quite nicely. She definitely liked them, but wasn't 100% sure of them. So I told her we could go to a few more stores and look. Fast forward to four more stores, an hour and a half later, and all we came home with were these:


Yeah, they're not gym shoes. But they were on clearance!

I guess we'll keep looking . . .

I blame my mom.

I must be carrying the recessive Van de North Show Loving gene and passed it along to Emma where it has taken hold.

Emma seems to always get the cute footwear. Wasn't she the one who had the pink boots too. What style!

Yes, she got the pink cowboy boots when we were shopping for pre-school shoes, and when we were shopping for dress shoes for Christmas (maybe black patent mary janes or something like that) we came home with sparkly, strappy, silver "high heels"! She always manages to talk me into something other than I was planning on.

Looks as those shoes are made of gold, they are so pretty.
