As a mother of a little girl, I would never have imagined how difficult it is to buy new shoes for my princess. We have been on a shoe-buying mission for a couple of weeks now. Along our journey for new shoes, we have tried many stores and many attempts of trying the shoes prior to the purchase. Bethany, however, has had a different agenda whenever we tried to buy her shoes. She hates having her old shoes taken off in the store. She has a little melt down when we try to remove them in the middle of the aisle. Don't even ask what happens when I try to take off her socks to try on sandals. Goodness Gracious...it isn't fun sight--especially me being 8 months pregnant trying to console and manage a worked-up toddler.
The last few times we tried on shoes amidst Bethany's meltdown she'll exclaim, "NOT PRETTY, NOT PRETTY!" How dare she tell us they aren't pretty...doesn't she know that she is referring to the cutest shoes in the store...clearly she is just not a fan of the whole shoe-shopping process.
Well, our shoe-drama ends today when we spot our Shoe Savior....Winnie-the-Pooh! Finally, we find shoes that our Feet-Princess would allow to try on! Thank Goodness. I thought we would be squeezing her feet into those size 5 for the next 16 years! I just hope this is an isolated shopping fiasco...can you imagine what would she look like if she keeps this up for prom dress shopping! Yikes!
