Stuttering Shell: If you really think you're wearing those today --

If you really think you're wearing those today --

-- then you've got it all wrong.


I said that today to my 7 year old. Well, not those exact words, but the point was still the same.


We were standing on the front porch this morning waiting on the school bus when I looked down at her feet and saw these:

Now, had it been, oh, I don't know in the 60s or 70s today I would have let her gotten away with wearing them to school. Or, if she had on tights today I would have let her wear them. BUT, none of that was the case this morning. In fact, we were outside, standing in the cold, 20 degree (with that wind chill factor) weather and it was drizzling rain. She was in jeans, a long-sleeved t-shirt, a hoodie AND had a 3-in-1 jacket on with the hood up and had gloves on...and she had those blasted open toe dress shoes on.

Seriously. I don't care that we live in Virginia Beach where people (including myself) wear flip-flops all year long. I made her go inside and change the shoes -- I mean, she had her sneakers and a pair of socks stashed in her bookbag anyway for P.E. She threw a fit. I think she even shed a tear or two. Big deal. I'm sorry, but you are not grown. You are seven. I realize that you want to be fashionable and look cute, but you're in the 2nd grade. It's also not summertime, picture day, dress up day, etc. You will abide by my rules and that includes what you will and will not wear on your feet when it's fuh-fuh-fuh-reezing outside. So there.

No, it's not. Trust me, there are some damn cute little girls shoes out there! She's such a clothes horse and into fashion, too. You & Malia would probably have some fab convos about your shoe collection. Trust me on this one. ;-)
