Big Foot

Last week, my daughter was limping when she went to school. I asked if she wanted to stay home and she said no so I assumed it fell asleep or she slept on it wrong.

Amelia's feet grew once size in 2 weeks!
When I picked her up at school her teacher’s said they had tried to figure out what was wrong with her but had no idea. I was about to visit her pediatrician when we walked by a shoe store and the manager asked to measure Amelia’s feet. On a normal day I would have ignored him but I was desperate for answers and took her into the store. He measured her feet and said her shoes were a full size too small. We picked out a nice pair of shoes and then Amelia magically started walking without a limp.

I felt horrible that I didn’t realize she was uncomfortable because her shoes were too small. It just never crossed my mind. Amelia got really upset that she couldn’t wear here old shoes anymore… even after picking out a fancy new pair. So we decided to save the shoes for her baby cousin. This made her feel a lot better.

It’s just crazy to me how fast kids grow up. I can’t believe how tall my daughter is and that now she now wears a size 9 shoe.

    Warren is wearing size 11’s now. I have started keeping an eye out for shoes, boots, and sandals whenever I go to thrift stores, garage sales, anywhere. Then I just save them up until he fits in to them. He’s not picky and I still buy him at least one pair of new tennis shoes when he wears them out. It’s amazing how fast he goes through shoes! Any that are still in good shape I donate. I went into a sports store and was looking at shoes, the prices were crazy. I am not paying $30+ for a pair of shoes Warren is going to grow out of in 5 minutes! I would for some nice dress shoes because I don’t usually find those anywhere. But just tennis shoes? No way! I’m glad A is doing better, poor thing, I bet her cousin will love the shoes when she’s oder. That is a very sweet thing to do 🙂

      We got another pair of size 9 shoes from a friend because her daughter grew out of them so fast. They looked new. She must have worn them once. I can’t believe Warren is an 11!!!!!

Let's Make Some Noise!
