One thing about my kids is that getting new shoes for them is the best day ever. Especially Atticus. I wish you could see his face when I tell him he has a new pair of shoes to open… and then his face when he sees them on his feet is PRICELESS. He loves it! So telling him that not only did he get new shoes from DSW but his sissy and mama and daddy ALSO had new shoes that matched – lots of excitement was going on haha.
I was having one of those days where we were indoors and I felt like I just kept saying “no” a million times. “No I won’t open that bottle of baby tylenol for you. Where did you find that?!” “Don’t dump out the box of q tips again!” “No jumping on the bed with your scissors! Here is your construction paper.” “No Rosie, don’t eat that!” hahah ahhhh. The funny thing is, saying “don’t eat that! Yucky!” comes out of my mouth soo much because Rosie is my little scavenger finding anything and everything to consume. That is why I like to just go OUTSIDE. Where they can break sticks, jump off rocks, “tickle” each other with the weeds, find stones to collect, climb trees, whatever they want. And I get to take a break from playing mean mom who won’t let them do all the fun stuff like pull out my box of teeeeeny tiny hair ties and throw them all over the room! Sometimes those types of things are funny and it’s like you see lipstick on the wall and you can’t help but think it’s cute because they are so proud of their art work. But ya know then there are the “no” days and those make me crazzzy. So we ended our day by putting on our new kicks from DSW and having the best evening together at a really pretty lookout.
With DSW’s “March On” campaign they want to show mama’s that all you need is a positive outlook and your FEET to overcome any unexpected or hard days. Or a “no” day 🙂
