Emma is finally (mostly) walking now! She has a few pair of shoes but they are flip-flops and crocs. Her daycare asked if I had any other shoes for her, because when she goes on the playground the sand gets in her crocs. So I went to Stride-rite looking for her 1st pair of "walking" shoes yesterday, but they really didn't have much to choose from in her size. They were basically all sandals or sneakers. I remember when my brothers were little (over 20 yrs ago!) they just had plain white leather lace-up shoes as their first pair. I got talked into buying a $48 pair of pink leather sneakers. When I told my mom, she said that was ridiculous and I should bring them back. So, now I need to go back to the mall tomorrow I don't know where else to look. A co-worker suggested Sears or JC Penney.
Ugh...I never thought this would be so difficult!
