Which means I'm not one bit surprised that Edee loves shoes. One of her favorite past times is sneaking into my closet and trying on my shoes...the colored ones of course! It sounds like a heard of elephants upstairs as she walks across my bathroom floor.
So this is where I found Eden yesterday afternoon...in my closet.
Trying on my shoes...
She always says " K mom, don't look! Close your eyes and don't peek...ta da!" "I say "Oh Edee, you look so awesome!" After a few passes she says "Okay just one more, mom." Which usually means like five more...She will usually strut around doing a few passes and say "I love these ones mom, these are my favorite!" I swear one of these days she's going to break her ankle....or my shoes.
When she put these on she said "Do I look like I'm seven?" thinking seven is so grown up.... I say "Uh...more look more like twenty-seven." she says "Nah, I think I look like I'm seven."
So there you have it, my shoe obsessed four and a half year old...(going on seven). I have to admit that it makes me smile and I can't help myself when I find fabulous, funky shoes that fit her. She has at least twice as many shoes as Maya. But Maya could care less....as long as she has her tennis shoes and fake croc's she's happy as can be. Which makes it even more fun for me to indulge Eden's love for shoes. The apple didn't fall too far from the tree here, now did it.
