Impossible to Keep Her Shoes On

What's a mother to do when her child, my child, constantly feels the need to want to take off her shoes, and inevitably, her socks too? There are many times I joke that I am going to duct tape Sarah's shoes to her feet but clearly we know that I can't do this. Still, many times, I continue to say this. Even my husband, as part of the joke, says we should staple them to her feet. Well, we all know we can't do this either. Oh well.

Sarah loves her feet and I love her feet. I can't get enough of them. I kiss them, tickle them, play with them. They are just so darn cute. They won't be this small for long and I am trying to savour them for as long as possible.

Maybe I created this obsession with her wanting to take her shoes off, but nonetheless, it's a problem we often have to deal with.

Even though we have tried a number of shoes, I guess we are going to have to just hope her next pair of shoes stay on long enough. And, my husband also reminded me that when I was a baby I rarely liked to keep my clothes on. Oh well. Guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.


  1. My two year old niece doesn't like to keep her shoes on as well, but we have found that she loves crazy colored or "be-dazzled" flip flops and she likes to keep those on.

  2. Thanks for the tips. Sarah loves all things shiny and sparkly and bedazzled. :)
