It seems like it was just two months ago when I bought my 10-year-old daughter new shoes. Three new pairs in fact.
Say…it WAS just two months ago. And now she has outgrown them. “Can’t you just wear your basketball shoes to school?”
My “lady girl” as I call her–is sized as a lady in clothes and shoes but is still the age of a girl–she’s tricky to shop for. She’s not ready for low-plunging necklines and low-waisted jeans. And oh the boots in her size. Thigh-high. High-heeled.
Off to the lady boot store we went. Let me tell you, when you outgrow your boots and it’s the end of January, it’s slim pickings…for an age-appropriate boot. She found the perfect pair. For a hooker.
We finally found a pair we both agreed on. No-heel, black suede with fringe…in her size!
She’s only 10 but her feet happen to be ginormous. Big feet on a woman = big brains. This I know. After all, my girl takes after her Mama. 🙂
