Yellow Shoes

As of this morning, all three kiddos are back at school, and can you believe it? Our son's a senior. A. Senior. Nearly 18 years old, as in, an adult. Wow. I told him this morning that he was gonna 'rule the school", Lol...

Yesterday he and I got into a bit of a 'debate' when he asked me to buy him a pair of shoes with 'big personality', as he put it. I probably would have been more yielding initially if I hadn't just been treated rudely by the staff of another store, but that's a different story...

As you can see, he talked me into the shoes (and a payment plan to pay me 1/2!), and I guess they're not all that bad. One friend said he's just starting a trend. And hubby said we should pick our battles.

Truthfully, they've already kind of grown on me. Next year he'll be in college and if he moves away, I won't know what he's wearing on any given day and that makes me sad just thinking about it. Waaa...

So maybe when he's done with making his 'statement' and puts these shoes in the trash bin, I'll sneak them out and stash 'em in a closet. You know, for old times sake....

*sniff!* *sniff!* (Would somebody hand me a tissue already...?)

My oldest son is a junior. Waaaaa. I'm crying with you. Time goes sooooo fast!

BTW, the yellow shoes are kinda cool! :)

I'm having trouble finding shoes for my oldest. He's in 13 1/2! Any suggestions?

My son is a Sophmore in high school and daughter is a senior in college! Thankfully she is still living at home and commutes.

My son, who is 6 ft, 190 lbs, 13 size shoes, always likes the expensive shows, but he refused to buy them this year because he was using his own money. It was too funny. He mentions needing shoes but still doesn't want to shell out the $$.

oh my kids are all grown and have families of their own and I still have papers and an outfit of each locked away, sometimes I get them out and have a pity party that the time has gone so fast. So glad I kept the items, I already have some of my grandkids and have names put on everything so I remember who they belong too and maybo someday they will want them

My daughter is 14 and just started high school. Her "signature" shirt is her Boy George T-shirt she got off Ebay. Today she left for school in a long vintage black petticoat & MY black Buster Brown shoes. She did her back to school shopping in the thrifts stores of Pasadena.I can't really rag on her about dressing odd as I wore much weirder things to school.
