Several months ago, Harper developed a bit of an obsession with shoes. It started with his shoes. He wanted to wear shoes most of the time, and loved changing into different pairs multiple times daily. Since he wasn’t independent with putting shoes on himself it was sometime a hassle for me. However, he always sat patiently while I crammed his chubby feet into narrow shoes or used a shoe horn to help the process so I’d oblige him. It wasn’t long before his interest in shoes progressed to any and ALL shoes.
Currently, if Harper spies a vacant pair of kicks, without fail, he’ll remove his current pair and slip into his new find. It doesn’t matter who owns the shoes, what size they are, or even the style. Seriously, he can strut around effortlessly in anything from my 4″ wedges to Poppa’s work boots. It’s a futile effort, but he will attempt wearing his siblings too small shoes as well. He snags my shoes on a regular basis, and even the shoes of visitors. The day I take him into a shoe store he’ll be in hog Heaven.
Honestly, I can’t blame Harper for his passion for shoes. I have a rather extension collection myself. In fact, I’ve commissioned George to build storage for them in our new closet because I can’t locate every single pair with ease. Mint strappy sandals found at Target are my among current faves. I wore them with most everything all summer…mint pairs surprisingly well with many colors. I’m sad they’ll soon be out of rotation, but looking forward to boot season.
Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?
P.S. Should you ever pay Harper a visit, please keep your shoes away from his reach. Otherwise he’ll assume they are for him and off he’ll trot!
