My Bubba's Shoes

These are the shoes my kids wore when they were about 2 - 3 years old. I have had these around since 2003. They bring back such wonderful memories.

I remember taking Lindsey to the parent and tot class we had enrolled in, to help her with her socialization skills. We were playing on the Little Tykes inside playground equipment. She was so happy.

I remember Michaela always wearing these shoes, when it was her turn. But as soon as the hand-me-down Dora shoes fit, she didn't want these anymore. But I was okay with that because I had one more who would be wearing them soon.

Adela, she loved them. When I said "to go get your shoes", it was always these shoes. If I had misplaced them and I pulled out another, she had a cow and was upset. I had to look for these shoes. But by the time she had got them, they were starting to look beat up.

Well as you can see, they are in bad shape. A few days ago, I decided it was time to throw them out. I didn't realize how attached I was to them, until that moment. I had to take a picture of them. I was a bit said, though not as sad as Adela. She did not want me to throw them out. She complained that the other shoes I had given her were too big and demanded her old ones. Sorry Honey!

On Sunday, Jason and Adela had started to chill on the couch and eventually fallen asleep. So sweet! It was so a "I must take a picture" moment.

I know what you mean about the shoes, I have all of my daughter's; some are pretty beat up but I can't get rid of them, or any of her clothes, or her toys, etc. They're beginning to take over the basement!

I remember throwing away some of Michael shoes. They were his favorite Lion KIng sneakers. He kept taking them out of the garbage and cried when they were finally gone:(

The sleepy picture is too cute!

Oh my gosh-I would not be able to throw those shoes out! I would probably put them in a glass box on the mantle! (If I had a mantle....)

Wow - Isn't it funny how easily we get attached to something just by the memories it brings us? I think that may be why I'm such a pack rat!!
And the whole spam thing yeah - just don't get it. If they have so much time on their hands why can't thy do something a little more productive??

Isn't it amazing the little things we can get attached to!! I just love when my husband and daughter cuddle on the couch and sleep, so precious. Those two look so comfy and adorable together!!!!

Sometimes it is SO hard to throw things away! Pictures are a great compromise, and I am sure you will do a great scrapbooking display for them!!

AH! I know what you mean. I get attached to my kid's things. And just think of all the little steps that were made in them? So sweet.
Great pic, too!
