As most mothers can relate, I had one of those weeks that I was glad to say goodbye to! On Friday morning, I put Evan's shoes on him and left the room momentarily, to get Carter up from his nap. When I returned to the living room, Evan was staring down at his feet with a very strange look on his face.
"Evan, did I put your shoes on too tightly?", I asked.
"No mommy", he replied in an innocent voice.
So I continued to get everything together for a play date we were running late for.
I left the room again and came back and this time he was walking kinda funny around the living and still looking down at his feet.
Again I asked, "Is everything all right with you feet, Evan?"
"Yes mommy", he responded again.
I glanced toward his feet and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, so I continued hustling about to finish getting ready.
After about 5 more minutes, he is STILL looking down at his feet.
Now I am completely intrigued with what he finds so fascinating down there. I went over to him and looked down, and this is what I saw:
And that my friends, kinda sums up the week that we had. Poor kid - he knew something didn't feel right but was confident in his all knowing mom that apparently that was the way the shoes were supposed to feel. Who knows how long he would have walked around with his shoes on backwards? I know that it isn't that big of a deal and that worse things can happen, but Murphy's Law was pretty much the standard this whole week! That is another of my "Mother of the Year" moments that makes me feel so proud!
