Photo Story Friday: Little Things

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Kelli


It had been one of those trips to the store that make you wish you had never stepped foot in the place. After a huge tantrum in the cart at Old Navy, we were ready to check out. As I placed the items from the cart on the counter, I had to laugh to myself when I saw a pair of shoes that honestly would probably not be worn anywhere, but were very pretty. They were a Carrie Bradshaw pair of shoes for a toddler, except that since they were from Old Navy they were not the price of my mortgage payment.  I said, "Let  me guess you wanted these and threw them in the cart when Mama wasn't looking." I got a sheepish nod, eyes still full of tears. I set them aside and said to my self,


 

"Daddy will just love these." Since he still doesn't know how to handle everything girly yet. Luckily they had her size on the rack since the pair she threw in the cart were two sizes too big.  Yep, I'm a sucker, but I'm sure they will get worn in all kinds of outlandish ways by my Princess. She also made sure to spit on a dress during her tantrum to claim that as hers too.

Those are adorable. I can't resist cute shoes or big eyes either.

"spit on a dress" haha! Now that's one way to get mom to buy something for you. What a crack-up - although I'm sure it wasn't at the time. Love the shoes though. We need to make a trip to Old Navy.

Miss PB is one smart cookie! Spitting on the dress to call dibs is CLASSIC! And I can't wait to see what she does with those shoes. I have thought several times about getting Maren something similar, because I know she would adore them - I need to just suck it up and buy them.

Adorable shoes. :)

Reyna does that when we are grocery shopping. I find random things in the cart.
