After one of our walks, Andrew noticed that Genevieve had walked a hole in her little See Kai Run shoes. The time had come; my baby needed real shoes.
We went to Stride Rite, which is where Mom took us to get shoes when we were little. I love that they sell good quality shoes and really fit kids' feet.
We picked something neutral that she could play and be comfortable in. Something that said, "I'm here to have fun!" and wasn't fussy.

For example, the other day when we were out for a walk, and as we turned a corner a tall teenager with a jingly backpack walked by. Guess who has two pigtails and did a complete one-eighty to follow that siren song? You guessed it.
