1 year, 5 months.
Grandma got you some fun bedtime slippers to wear with your pajamas. They turn your cute little feet into huge monster feet!
For the past couple of weeks, Mommy has been trying to get you wear them while she reads you a bedtime story. You have been quite skeptical, only leaving them on for a few seconds each night.
But perhaps that is changing, now that you are really getting into shoes. Even when we’re not about to go outside, you still walk over to the closet and insist on picking out a pair of shoes for me to help put on you.
It’s a normal thing for you to be playing with your toys in the living room, while wearing your pink Nike running shoes; not because you need them, but because you are a shoes girl!
I think in your mind, you’re not fully dressed until you are wearing shoes, even if you’re just hanging out at the house with us.
You are forming your identity. It’s becoming obvious that shoes are a part of who you are.
So, even if the “shoes” are actually funny monster feet during your bedtime story… you are recognizing, they are still shoes!
This past weekend you decided to go public with your monster shoes. And by public, I mean that you decided to walk out of your bedroom during story time and show your brother and me.
I’m not quite sure if you fully realize that the monster shoes are meant to be silly, but as you strolled around upstairs in them, you proudly showed them off.
Your fashion show was met by us praising you for how cute you looked in them.
Yeah, you are going to be a shoes girl… even if they turn you into a fury monster!
