Training Up My Child….
Of all the things I long to teach my daughter, it seems my love for a great wedge has now taken hold. Here’s a little conversation we had Monday:
Her: (Putting on a pair of new, adorable, bejeweled wedges for Pre-K) I’m wearing these shoes to school today, ‘kay Mom?
Me: Aren’t you afraid they’ll hurt your feet during playtime?
Her: Who cares if they hurt as long as they have great gems on them?
Translation: What’s the big deal if they rub my feet to a blistery pulp as long as I look good climbing on the monkey bars?
That’s my girl….
She so gets it.
Nice to meet you, empathize with your blog.
Linked to please you and
Now thats a GIRL! No doubt about it! You trained her well!
i so admire women who are willing to make that sacrifice! i always go comfort over style – which is why i possess one of the ugliest shoe stashes in all of southeast asia.
I’m so glad I’ve got a girl!
Girly girl is absolutely gorgeous like her Mom, its a beautiful photo of you two x
Isn’t it nice to know you are raising her right?!!!!
Ha! I bought my daughter her first pair yesterday (she’s in Kindergarten). I debated for so long about it – I mean ‘heels’? She grabbed them out of my hand and wanted to wear them outside to play with her friends.
I’ve never been more proud!
Way to “train her up in the way that she should go!”
I can so relate to this!
Too funny! She certainly has the concept down!
Oh, I could hug her. You have done well, my friend.
Thatta Girl! It must have been a proud moment.
She is the cutest thing! J sure misses her at the concession stand…btw….is the only thing he misses:) lol!!
Me too…sore, that is.. from our walk….I was trying to keep up with you!! I’m ready for another power walk..to work the soreness out….maybe we’ll meet up again sometime!
What a sweet well-trained child!
Cute….Rachel is just starting to get “girlie”. She usually just wants to play with her brudder! She’s just 3 1/2 she still has time! LOL
She’s so cute!
I type this as I sit here with my 40-something achy feet from years of mistreating my feet. . . .
I tried to get my five-year-old to wear some cute flip-flops but the “thingy” between her toes hurt too bad. Truly, she doesn’t fall to far from this tree. We’re sneakers and non-thingy shoe wearing girls in our house. But her sneakers…now, they’ve got some jewels just in case someone is tempted to forget her “pink” side.
ah, it’s good to know she is still girly in a house full of boys! I feel her pain! Keep the heels coming!!!
Hey…every woman knows beauty is pain. Pain that men just don’t appreciate enough of. Let’s just hope she’s not the that stage yet. :)
Sounds like you are doing an excellent job in training her up in the way she should go.
I am so proud of that girl!!! Way to go mom!
My dear one would question if I birthed her too! lol
You know, if you think about it soon enough women have to start wearing flats and sneakers for safety during our seasoned years. You can rest assured I’m taking full advantage of those lovely pre-season ones! :)
Oh how she’ll grow to love the flip flop the older she gets! :)
She sounds like a real cutie!
I enjoy your blog so much!☺
How cute!! I meant to tell you your daughter is so pretty. I loved the picture of the two of you in the last post! She is just like her momma!!
“Train up your daughter to sacrifice pain for beauty, for lo, the wedge demands it. And verily, the jewels do beckon and calleth forth rejoicing.”
that’s hilarious! sounds like my pre-k’er too! lol though we’ve had a few spills already, so learning the hard way!
Oh my gosh, that is hilarious! It starts so youngggggggg. :LOL:
I love you blog design. I have blog envy! :-)
This is priceless! I can’t wait for Lilah to wear the shoes you got her with “gems” on them! If she starts complaining about blisters, I’ll send her to talk to The girl!
It’s funnier from a BOY! My teenager was given a brand new pair of Shocks (or Shox or whatever) tennis shoes that were too big, but otherwise just what he wanted. He wore them for everything, but finally DID have to retire them during Phys. Ed. because they kept slipping on his feet. I guess the girls are tougher and just stick it out. For beauty, you know :-)
This sounds just like my oldest daughter she would say things like I don’t care if it hurts as long as my feet are cute in them and that finish the outfit, I would tell you just wait tell you are pregnant… Guess what she said Mom there is no way am I wearing that kind of shoes it hurts, so she told me that I was right when she was younger telling he that being cute didn’t always matter…
Thank you for this post it brought back memorys
So imagine my chaGRIN when dear daughter’s preschool announced midyear that sneakers would be required every day.
I mean, do I design a wardrobe around SNEAKERS? Me thinks *not*.
Had I known at registration that they would pull this bait and switch on me….
ha ha ha ha How adorable! (Did they leave a blister??)
