Once upon a time, I was able to — successfully — pick out clothes for my kids. I would simply buy whatever struck my fancy, and then wrestle them into it. Done. Admittedly, that phase was pretty short-lived. Both of my kids have pretty strong ideas of what they like to wear, and I know they’re not the only ones. So when we started getting reader requests for a back-to-school shoe roundup, I was apprehensive. I picked out a few shoes, showed my boys and….waited. “Oh Mom,” Raines said. “You and Linzi-Auntie” (and yes I’ll just throw Linz right under that bus with me)”both think you know what kids like…but you don’t. I mean…remember those star shoes?”
For the record, I still love those star shoes. But OK, kid. Fine. YOU do it.
And they did.
