One of my kids just arrived home with new shoes

Mr. Emmett spent a large part of this morning with his grandparents. They wanted to undertake the difficult task of finding Emmett shoes he will wear.

Emmett just arrived home a few minutes ago and with him, is a pair of shoes he’s pretty excited about. I’m super grateful for the help and I’m glad Emmett feels good about these shoes. That being said, I’m not going to hold my breath because I’ve been around this block a few too many times.

I’m certainly not trying to rain on anyone’s parade but I will remain cautiously optimistic.

    This calls for a New Novel: Black…& Yellow Shoes!

  2. I look forward to an update!! We don’t have it near as hard as you do but I dread new shoes because my son hates them. He hates change and the different feel on his feet until he wears them in. He’s getting much better though and thankfully will wear new shoes when he has to. But he generally only has 2 pairs – his school shoes and his every day shoes (and they are worn summer and winter). I wait with baited breath to see how Emmett goes. Wanting to wear them and being able to wear them are 2 different things!!!

      I wish everyone understood that… Thanks for saying it.

  3. Nice! Sometimes it is good to outsource the more difficult things we have to deal with, and it lowers our stress levels. Glad your family is able to help you out.

    1. Thanks Rebecca.. 🙂
