Just a quick thread to get your comments. I am barefoot mummy here in New Zealand with two gorgeous barefoot children, we go everywhere in barefeet, shopping, school trips, family, restaurants etc. Just been shopping today and was stopped in the supermarket by an elderly woman complaining about my three year old being barefoot and not having any clothes on (it is summer down here after all!) and then she tried to have a go at me for being barefoot too!. I was so pissed off at her attitude, I told her to mind her business, that we were a barefoot family and we had no need for shoes at all.
Interested in your thoughts. Down here we have no store rules about shoes, people are barefoot everywhere, I havent had shoes on my feet for over four years, so I find this type of shitty behaviour really annoying!
