Conversations with Shelby

Shelby helped me clean out my closet yesterday. It was full of things that I can no longer wear. (That's a whole 'nother post). BUT, she was a big help to me and we had a fun time. She had way more fun trying on my clothes and shoes than I did. For me it was depressing, for her it was cool. She has inherited my love for shoes. This conversation ensued during our shoe sorting.

Shelby: Mommy, you've got a lotta lotta shoes!

Me: Yes, I love to buy shoes. But, a lot of times I get them home and then I never wear them.

Shelby: Well, I would wear them. I love them all.

Me: I keep them because you never know when you might need a cute pair of clear glass looking slippers, or a nice pair of boots.

Shelby:
I wish that my feet was the same size as you so that I can wear all of your shoes.

Me: ...and I am so glad that they're not. I'd never have any shoes to wear AND you'd look silly with big feet like mine right now.

Later on in the evening I went into her room and found three pair of my shoes in her room. It looks like it doesn't really matter if they fit or not. *wink*

That's cute! Looks like Shelby has developed a love for shoes just like her mom. :)

My 12yo has developed my love of shoes, also, and now she wears the same size as I do. My black boots keep disappearing!

I used to love clumping round in my Mum's shoes when I was little. I never had a daughter to do this but my granddaughter, Gracie Jean, is following in my footsteps, and my shoes! :)

What a fun conversation! It reminds me how much I loved to wear MY mom’s shoes when I was little ;--)
