Babystar is a dirty little hippie.

What did I expect, dressing her like this?


This little hippie has learned to walk and wants to run around everywhere. BAREFOOT.

This is mostly fine with me and I am definitely the mom with the barefoot toddler almost everywhere. Library story time. Grocery store. Basically, anywhere with a roof. Or a floor. One or the other. But she has to wear shoes outside for safety and stuff. I know this because I get mean looks at the park and I only let her on the swings where her feet ARE IN THE AIR. And ok, maybe on the slide too but I am holding her the whole time and she barely gets sand on her toes and ok yes I get it she needs to wear shoes.

We tried to try on shoes three different times. She screams when I put them on her feet. I learned that sandals are a definite no. There is NO WAY IN HELL anything can go between her toes. Or over her toes. Or near her toes. I have to first trick her with socks, and then she still mildly protested the tennis shoes. But at least she didn’t scream. She’s almost out of a size 3 but the size 4 is still too big. But she didn’t like could not stand walking in the size 4 so I had to get the 3 too. We have a ‘shoes needed’ adventure coming up soon. Babies R Us had ‘buy one, get one half off’ so I bought a size 3 and a size 4, for a total of $27.01. She will probably outgrow the size threes by the time I finish this paragraph.

They cute tho.


Does anyone have any shoe recommendations? Or perhaps just coping mechanisms? Or maybe even just a nice wine recommendation for afterwards?

(What wine pairs best with whining?)

Babystar has fat fat adorable delicious fat fat feet. And she hates anything touching her toes. Or her heels. Or her soles. Who makes that shoe? Or can she just be barefoot forever? Maybe she will be the next Shailene Woodley?
