It’s All About the Shoes…

My granddaughter has clearly inherited my shoe “thing” – I won’t call it an obsession, that would be excessive, but I do kind of have a shoe thing.  And so does she.

She’s not exclusive or particular about her interest in shoes – she’s just as fascinated with Dee’s shoes


as she is by my (much cuter) selection.  She likes to carry his around and try to put them on – today, she discovered she can get both of her feet in one of his shoes.  It makes walking a little tricky, but that’s beside the point.

She is, however, apparently developing her own ideas on fashion.  I was getting ready for work yesterday morning, wearing these shoes:


when she came running to me, saying, “Oooh, Ooooh,” with great urgency, clutching another shoe in one hand.  By dint of pointing and her favorite monosyllabic word – “uh,” she made it clear that I was to put on the shoe she’d brought me.

Obediently, I did.


We both admired it for a minute – it was, I have to admit, probably a better selection for my outfit.  Unfortunately, I had to explain to Lucia, I haven’t been able to find the match to that shoe for a while, and I can’t wear just one shoe to work, no matter how cute it is.

She accepted the bad news, with only a reproachful glance or two at me.   I hope my shoe selection today meets with more approval.

She is clearly my granddaughter.

  1. granddaughter Minnie’s first word: shoe shoe
    she calls her red patent leather ballet flats her ‘fancy reds”, as in ” Nooo nana I want to wear my fancy reds!!!” I love a gal who has her style ideas out front and stands up for her choice.


  2. 🙂 what a great story. Don’t you hate when you’re missing one shoe like that? And clearly, those are fantastic shoes. Smart little girl. Already, a fashionista!!




  3. Lol, I do hate when I’m missing a shoe, feels a bit Cinderella-ish, you know?

    And yes, she is a smart one…. 🙂

    Hugs back to you…
