In His Shoes (#370)
If it were up to Charlie, I think he would just wear the same black slip-on shoes everywhere—school, beach, pool. He is agreeable about wearing different shoes, but needs a reminder (or me showing him: “Here’s your sandals!”) So I was pleased when, just before 11am this morning, Charlie ran to put on his “san-dohs” and off we went to the pool.
I put on Charlie’s other pair of sandals—-the ones with the straps in the back that he tends not to put on (he slides his feet in and smashes the back straps down).
I still have six inches on Charlie but our feet are, yes, the same size. (Can you tell whose shoes are whose…….The black slip-ons are Charlie’s favorites because, I think, they look just like Jim’s.
Sometimes Charlie likes to take a turn around the house in the Mary Janes—-so I guess it was high time that I try on his footwear and see how it feels to walk in the shoes of my great not-so-little-for long man.
Yes, they are tough shoes to fill.
