These Boots Are Made For Walking!


Jack has been infatuated with an old pair of my boots. He wears them everyday at home with the clothes that he picks out and daddy's tie. Today, we were meeting a friend for breakfast and when it came time to take off the boots and put his shoes on, he had a total meltdown! I finally decided that it was ok for him to win this one. My sweet little boy wore my boots out to breakfast. As he worked to clip clop along to keep up with me, I have to admit I was really aware of the public reaction his(err...my) boots were getting. I could see all of the mommy's who have come before me in this stage of childrearing remembering those moments fondly and the new mommy's who are still in denial that this will never happen to them giving me looks of disapproval. One woman who had appeared to be in a terrible mood as we approached smiled immediately at the site of my handsome little boy and told me that I was a "good mommy" for letting him express myself. I have to admit I felt strangely proud of that little person in the footwear of his choosing and I could tell he was proud too. My how I wish time could stand still.....
