What are Moss Feet Shoes?
BeanBean's feet are getting wider again. He's wearing a pair of size 9 XW shoes right now; I bought them even though they were a bit too long (he only needed an 8) but they were the right width and they weren't uncomfortable. Yesterday, however, when I tried to put them on I had a heck of a time, and as soon as he could he took his shoes off saying that they were uncomfortable.
I checked his feet in the shoes, and he still has exactly the same amount of length (in other words, he still only needs an 8) but they were very tight cross-wise (he needs a wider shoe). This means that right now, he's probably measuring 8 XXXW. Again.
Now I'm going to have to find a way to buy him some Pedoodles, and that'll mean no swimming lessons....
What is with the hobbit feet?!?!
I hope everyone had a nice Solstice, too.
I told Mike that I thought we should celebrate Solstice, and was quite shocked when he agreed with me!
At any rate, I think I'll make an actual effort next year....
I also told Mike a bit about Saturnalia (as part of this year's "Christmas is a seriously pagan holiday with Jesus slapped on top" speech) and he took it better than I expected.
He may have even been reading!
I'm waiting until Channukah to give the kids presents; this year, the first night of Channukah happens to be December 25th, so it's not that big a deal.
