New clothes, new shoes

We took Fainjin shopping yesterday.  He has grown, and all his trousers are flapping around – or more accurately, slightly above – his ankles.  I’d also realised that his shoes were slightly too small.  And all the “spare” hand-me-downs from various people that we had as backups were the same size.

So we found him three new pairs of pants suitable for daycare before his tolerance for trying on clothes expired.  Then we headed for the shoes.  He only tried on a couple of pairs, but luckily one pair fit and were considered acceptable.  I think the flashing lights helped.

As he walked to daycare this morning, I worried that he would fall or walk into something.  He was holding his new pants up above his ankles, walking stiff-legged, and staring at his feet to see the flashing lights.

    I would so love a pair of flashing light shoes. Also think the toddler shoes with the squeaker in the soles are pretty cute, although squeaking with each step might get old after a while.

      Ooooh, thank goodness he didn’t find any squeaky ones! Who would deliberately buy squeaky shoes? I suppose it could be likened to putting a bell on a cat… at least you’d never lose the kid! :-D But you might want to, after a while, if they were squeaking everywhere they went.

    This sounds really cute! I always secretly wanted flashy lights for my shoes when I was younger. Next post, I expect to see some cute photos ;)

      It’s hard to get a photo of them flashing, and they just look like ordinary sneakers otherwise. Perhaps I can find some cute photos of something else… :-D
