Big foot sighting
Or a Yeti. And he is living in my home! With this weather all crazy and wet, I had to yell at my kids to put some real shoes on. And Diego kept whining and whining, "My shoes are too tight!" All of his shoes were a size 3.5, so I figured he might have outgrown them over the summer while he was milking those flip flops for all they were worth. So I told him to wear his big brother's shoes. Surely Noah's would fit him. He started crying again, "Those don't fit me either!" And if you don't already know Diego, he is a huge drama queen. He whines and cries if the wind blows on him. So naturally, I didn't believe him. "Then wear some smaller socks but you better have some shoes on!"
So he then comes out wearing Mikey's shoes and they seemed to fit him fine. Now, Mikey is a whole six years older than him and his shoes are a size 5.5, so I thought, he must be swimming in those shoes, that knucklehead! But no, he looked fine.
I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to buy him a new pair of shoes. Sigh. No time or money to buy him a new pair of Vans, so we went over to Payless. Just to make sure we were getting the right size, I had them measure his feet.
Size 6.5! In men's shoes!
So not only is he growing at an alarming rate, he also moved into the higher price bracket. Dang. I really miss that $12.99 toddler price. Seriously.I told him all he needs now is some fur under his armpits, a job and he can move out on his own.
I swear these kids are going to be the death of me.
