Isaac seems to have a way of destroying shoes. I don’t really know what it is about him. My Dad used to fuss at me for dragging my feet, “When you’re buying shoes, you can walk how you want…until then, pick up you feet!” I was all prepared to fuss at my kids in the same fatherly way…but Isaac doesn’t drag his feet. Still, he destroys his shoes. On Monday, Emily took Isaac to get new shoes. She started off at a local department store. It turns out my 8-year old son wears an adult size 8 1/2 shoe. Emily asked the attendant to bring forth their very cheapest 8.5 sneaker. In response, they brought out a pair of shoes valued at $145. Obviously they valued them more than we did. He’ll need a new pair in 3-6 months no matter what they cost. My crew finally ended up at a chain store and found a pair that were reasonably priced and stylish.
Ok, but seriously, an adult size 8.5 shoe on an 8-year old…he clears a path…mothers grab small children out of the way when he walks by. The US Geological survey calls when he jumps rope. It’s crazy. My son is Sasquatch!
