It's so bad that when I take them off at the end of the day it's almost as I've been using her toes as toothpicks because I can taste the smell on the back of my tongue.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I spring for the cheapest shoes on the rack but her feet are growing so fast that I refuse to spend a significant amount of money on something that's going to be obsolete in a few weeks.
Yesterday Nick came home early and the minute he walked in the door I tagged out and spent a glorious hour browsing the aisles of Target alone. I decided to buy Ellie some new shoes - this time some sparkly princess ones. Running shoes seemed like a step up from her current stink holes and I thought they might hold out a little longer before they start to wreak. And what girl doesn't like sparkly princess shoes?
They looked a little big but they're the next size up and since her toes have started to peek through the ends of her current shoes (which I let go because I looked it as aeration) I went ahead and bought them.
As you can see, they are huge. Unfortunately it's too late because apparently this is one girl who LOVES HER SOME SPARKLY PRINCESS SHOES.
Note the ski-like fashion she has to employ to turn around.
