or wearing sandals
showing off pretty polished toes.
putting our best feet forward
here 3 generations of our family
are all wearing sandals
and baring our toes.
Do you have a favourite pair?
I know I do!
Our darling grand daughter Isla is almost walking!
She has been teetering and taking a few tentative steps
before she realizes that she is accomplishing this feat all by herself
and then she promptly sits down.
Speaking of toes, she likes to stand on her toes
like a wee ballerina
it is so cute to watch her arching her feet
wee little pink toes that are kissably perfect.
Conversation slows when she is around
we all watch and marvel
with her every move
it is enough
just to be in her presence
she brings such joy
to our family
in our Humble Bungalow.
I discovered a great shoe assortment at the children's shop on the Avenue.
It was quite an adventure
there's so much to choose from
Bolch ballet flats
soft leather Mary Janes
even Hunter Boots !
all manner of styles, colours, and designs...
When my children were young there were only a few standard styles
Buster Brown made a sturdy and reliable leather shoe for girls
they also made a shoe that was considered a boot
We bought new shoes every six months back then as their little feet grew so fast
my MIL took us shoe shopping
she didn't have many shoes herself but took great pleasure in buying shoes for her grand kids.
bronzed baby shoes
these were their first shoes
son's on top
a cute bell on hers
As I perused the selections
I found myself picking up various pairs and studying their construction
touching the soft leather
getting excited at the thought of Isla wearing them.
I am hoping that one day I will be shoe shopping
maybe she'll love shoes as much as I do.
I like the idea of being known as
The Shoe Grammy.
It sounds better than being
The Bag Grammy!
having said that
I'll be whatever she wants me to be.
Grammys aim to please!
