A few months ago I was tidying the house when big man was at pre school. I discovered one of his school shoes. Mmmmmnnnn the sneaky thing must have worn his trainers and I hadn't noticed - he is as devious as a teenager already I thought. Then I found his trainers. Now I was baffled. I started to panic slightly as it had been one of those days when it was a rush to get out of the house. To be honest that is any day we have pre school! Had I made my boy walk to school with only one shoe on? Was he too frightened to tell me, incase I shouted at him because we were running late? When we arrived at pre school I was somewhat relieved to see that he was wearing two shoes.Two shoes that looked pretty much alike. It turned out that he had got one of his correct shoes on and one from a pair that he had grown out of. You see the problem is when a boy reaches the age of 3, shoes just aren't that funky anymore and look pretty much the same.
So when I saw that this weeks theme on Pretty.Little.Things. was Funky Footwear - I had to put a bit more thought into the post. Luckily my boys like their wellies and they are pretty funky. Then there's the lovely little booties that my Mum made, and kept baby mans tiny toes toasty when he was a newborn, and last but not least the favourite current shoes that my boys have.
Maybe boys can have funky footwear afterall.
