The shoes are pretty but what they stand for is beautiful. To my almost two year-old, they mean dancing freedom. They mean being dressed up like Mommy. They are her first pair of Princess shoes.
I put them on her and just watch her eyes light up. And I'm reminded that on the ho hum days of parenting I might just start wearing some nice shoes around the house to put an extra spring in my step. Join me in pulling out the "too nice for normal days" things and see if the day seems a little more exciting and by all means, dance a little.
Join Chatting at the Sky for Tuesdays Unwrapped. It's a chance to be reminded of the little things that turn into the big things when we stop to observe them more closely. That's my paraphrase...The author does a much better job!
