(Catchy title huh? I'm a bit tired - sorry.)
My daughter has always been into shoes. She has little names for each pair (her fancy shoes, her blinking shoes, etc.) I always thought it was so cute, and can just imagine her as an adult, having a whole closet filled with shoes of every color and style. Typical girly-type obsession.
My son has picked up on this obsession. One of his favorite things to do try on other people's shoes. This works best with Ella's, because they are close to his size, but even grandpa's big hiking boots don't stop him! He especially like Ella's "fancy" shoes. (Because of the "click, click, click" sound they make on the floor I suppose.)
I'm not sure what to make of this. His father does have more shoes than "normal" men, so maybe that's all it is.
At least he'll be able to find a good career later.
