The girl loves shoes...
*notice our doormat... yes, the one that says, "NOOF." it used to way WOOF until a certain 4-legged family member ate a fourth of the W.
Well we have already established that Mary Martin loves shoes of all kinds. She'll bring you the ones she wants to wear and say 'shoe' and stick her foot out for you. I'd been looking everywhere for a pair of red sandals for her, and I finally found some at Helen's. They are a little too big, but she thinks they're fabulous. She doesn't walk in them, she struts.
This is from today. It's been sprinkling on and off all day. We got home and she kept saying "owzide," so I opened the door to show her it was raining, and she ran as fast as her stumps would carry her... right to the mudhole. There she stayed (whilst still wearing our new red shoes) at least 10 minutes going, "ray-ray!" (rain-rain) I thought, "This is a Kodak moment" and "She's gonna ruin those new shoes" almost simultaneously. But fun-mom prevailed over practical mom and I ran for the camera THEN took off the shoes. :)
