AW-For Mostly No Reason lol

edited January 2014 in Special Needs
All of DD1s shoes are "hurting her feet" according to her, even though atleast 1 pair is larger than her current size.  She's also having MAJOR issues with getting her socks right.  Her foot has grown though, considerably lately.  So we went shoe shopping.  The shoe dept in our mall has closed down apparently (ugh).  So DH was like, lets just take her to Saxon, across the street. They always have a lot of shoes on clearance and she ended up picking these ugg boots out, in a size larger, for 50% off!  Still expensive, but we bypass the sock issue, and she's got a huge pillow around her foot.  She was pretty excited.  

Side note: my ugg boots are so dilapidated and 3 years old lol. 

Other side note: you can't really tell in the picture but she fell in the mall (shocking-sarcasm) and her face hit a clothes rack in jcpenny, and she has a  HUGE bruise on the whole side of her face.  =(  She also couldn't walk alot and DH had to carry her, so I think it's time to start looking into medical strollers.  Or maybe a wheel chair?  The rheumatologist said to just let her rest a lot but she's pretty stubborn and once they start to hurt she just doesn't want to walk.

  • Cute! DD1 has knock-off uggs in the same color--she LOVES them :)
  • Last year when DD got on her wearing rainboots every day kick, we instituted a sock rule.  She's getting much better about socks, tights, leggings, etc now (thank goodness).

  • Cute boots! I am looking forward to buying girl footwear -- my husband is not. ;)

    My ASD kid has a strong preference for wearing socks. We had to work to convince him to go bare foot over the summer (we got there eventually). He is big on rules and he's got it in your head you're supposed to wear socks. Oh ASD quirks...

    What's up with the socks?

    This is a common complaint on my ASD boards. Really, like there are entire threads about kids who won't wear socks, kids who will only wear Crocs year round without socks in Alaska, kids who will only wear a single brand of seamless socks.

    There's an adult woman with Aspergers and OCD who shared with the parents her sock process and it was enlightening, funny and really sad. 
    I'm not sure, it seems to be more the shoes themself than her socks (most of her shoes are 10/11 and she needs a 12 or 13 apparently.  It's funny you mention the whole sock thing because I would spend..HOURS before school when I was little trying to get my socks right. I had to have the seam in between my last to pinky and pinky toe or else I flipped.  
    I think her feet may just be hurting her in general, as well, adding to the whole thing.
