Her Royal Shoeness

May 24, 2012

Most of my kids end up enjoying shoes for a time, maybe it is the ease in which the word “shoe” is pronounced. I am not sure what causes it, but with Lily, shoes are not just something she likes, they are an obsession.

For example, this morning Melody put on her pretty red sparkly shoes. Lily saw them and immediately wanted them. She could not steal her sister’s shoes (not for a lack of trying), so a massive tantrum ensued.

If she sees a shoe in the house, she must bring it to me immediately, shouting “SHOE!” over and over again. If I acknowledge said shoe, without helping her put it on her foot, there is a problem. If I help her put it on her foot but it falls off, we have a problem. If the shoe she has found fits her and I can help her put it on, THEN she is happy and stomps around the house shouting “SHOE!” with much glee. Honestly its really funny but a tad bit frustrating at times too.

Dave and I have a nice shoe rack in our closest. It is very organized and keeps our shoes in place. Problem is, Lily has discovered our wonderful cache of shoes. First thing in the morning, she comes in, giggling and goes straight for the shoe rack to bring us EVERY SINGLE PAIR OF SHOES. She must deliver them or her universe will explode. I swear that we are always picking up our shoes, every day…

So, this morning, as I got Lily out of the bath… I returned to the bathroom to retrieve Melody as well, when I heard clomping and laughter. As I turned around, I saw the following and decided to share it… this picture of Lily in all of her happy shoe glory.
